John Travolta's Son Dies

Jett Travolta, the 16-year-old son of actor John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston, died Friday while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas.

Jett had suffered a seizure at his family's vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island, said Michael Ossi, a lawyer for the family, in a statement through Travolta's rep.

The teen hit his head in a bathtub Friday morning and was declared dead at Rand Memorial Hospital, police spokeswoman Loretta Mackey told the Associated Press.

According to police, a caretaker had found Jett unconscious in the bathroom around 10 a.m. An autopsy is being pursued to determine the exact cause of death.

I don't want to overanalyze this, but allegedly he was last seen going into the bathroom last night (can't remember where I read that...and maybe it is not factual). He was found in the bathroom this morning. Didn't anyone know that he didn't go to bed? Again, this is only a question if the statement about when he was last seen is true.

As expected, this story is generating talk about Scientology, and if it prevented any use of medication. Jett had been rumored to be autistic, but the Travoltas said he had Kawasaki disease. This usually effects small children, so he should be through with it at the age of 16. However, sometimes arteries/heart can be damaged from Kawasaki disease, even after the disease is treated.
