Life - Death - Fate

I was about to log on to my yahoo mail account when I sighted an article in the "Featured" section in Yahoo page entitled Insight into Jett tragedy. I was curious because I saw a picture of John Travolta with a kid. So out of curiosity, I read the whole details and I found out that the child is John Travolta's son.


" Death certificate: Travolta son killed by seizure"
Associated Press writers Chris Gillette in Freeport and Juan McCartney in Nassau, Bahamas, contributed to this report.

FREEPORT, Bahamas – Jett Travolta's body shows no sign of head trauma and his death certificate says he was killed by a seizure, an undertaker said Monday, after doctors performed an autopsy on the 16-year-old son of the U.S actor.

The remains of John Travolta's son were being cremated and his parents planned to return to the United States with the ashes on Tuesday, said Keith McSweeney, director of the funeral home handling the body.

Jett Travolta had a history of seizures and was found unconscious in a bathroom Friday at a family vacation home on Grand Bahama Island.

Glen Campbell, assistant director of the funeral home, told The Associated Press that the body is in "great condition," despite police officials who had said the teen hit his head on a bathtub.

Authorities didn't release the results of an autopsy performed Monday, but Campbell saw the body and the death certificate, which was based on its findings.

The only cause of death that was listed was 'seizure'," he said.

Late Monday, a black hearse traveled from the funeral home to the airport after the family indicated they were bringing Jett's remains to Ocala, Florida, where they own a home. Two white jets waited as police in dress uniforms blocked access to the tarmac.

But the hearse was dispatched as a ruse, McSweeney told a news conference later Monday. He said he could not explain the reason for the decoy.

In a public statement released Sunday, John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston said they were "heartbroken that our time with him was so brief."

So very sad for any parent to lose a child. No matter what caused his death, I cannot imagine the grief of his parents. And the fact that its magnified by media.

Only hope the public and Paparazzi allow them to grieve in peace.

that's so, so sad. i can't imagine what it would be like to lose a child and, as dinah said, to have it out there in newspapers, on tv and on the internet.

I feel so awful for John Travolta and Kelly Preston. I cannot even begin to imagine waking up every day and having my son not be there. It must be a nightmare.

I agree with Dinah. I couldn't imagine grieving for a child and the media is hounding you.

It's heartbreaking to hear about situations like this and it is a reminder that life is short and we never know when our last breath will be.

I am so sorry to hear about Travolta's loss. My thoughts are with him and the rest of his family. Even though the child had been sick for a while it doesn't make the loss any easier.

john travolta is a good actor, singer, comedian, dancer and is a private person. he also started the disco craze in the 80's with his movie Saturday Night Fever.
what happened is a very sad tragedy to john and his family, sadder still is that the public and the media horde wanted to make a media circus out of it.
