car overheated within minutes of starting, now won't start even with a jump on 1999 Chrysler 300M

drove less than a block when overheating was detected, let it sit for about 30 minutes & it started right up, the engine sputtered and quit, within 10 seconds the battery was completely dead, will not start now even aided by a jump
