Girl, 6, died from extreme heat after she was left ‘locked inside the sweltering hot car of her mom’s boyfriend while he went to work’

A young girl tragically died from extreme heat after being ‘locked in her mother’s boyfriend’s sweltering hot car while we went to work’.

Markise Outing, 24, of Florida, was arrested June 25 and charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child after allegedly leaving his girlfriend’s 6-year-old daughter in a locked car for about three hours.

Outing had arrived at the Southern Manatee County Fire Department on May 20 around 5:17 p.m. to seek medical attention for the child, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

Paramedics rushed to the scene where they found the little girl unconscious, not breathing and with a body temperature of 107.2 degrees Fahrenheit – suspecting she may have suffered cardiac arrest.

After medics made desperate but unsuccessful attempts to revive the child, they were forced to rush her to a local hospital for further treatment as temperatures in the Bradenton area of ​​Manatee County reached 89 degrees that day.

The young girl tragically lost her life in hospital later that evening.

Outing was questioned by police about the girl’s extremely high temperature, but claimed it was due to her playing outside in a park and overheating.

However, officers revealed the man’s version of events was riddled with inconsistencies and GPS data later collected by investigators suggested the child had been in a parked vehicle for several hours.

Officers said Outing picked the girl up from school around 2:45 p.m. before driving to his workplace in Bradenton.

Here he allegedly left the child in his locked car with the windows closed while he was at work.

It was chillingly revealed that if Outing had driven to the fire station as soon as he discovered the unconscious body of his girlfriend’s daughter, she would have been trapped in the sweltering car for approximately three hours.

The MCSO said they believed temperatures inside the vehicle reached more than 115 degrees Fahrenheit — with an autopsy later revealing the child died from extreme heat.

Detectives are still awaiting the results of a toxicology report.

An investigation of the group ‘Children and car safety’ looked at data from 1990 to 2023, which showed that at least 1,083 children died in hot cars in the US during that period.

In Texas, 155 people died from overheated cars during that period, Florida was second with 118 deaths and California was third with 65 deaths.
