NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) -- John Travolta's teenage son, Jett, died in the Bahamas after falling ill and hitting his head at his family's vacation home, police said Friday.

 

A house caretaker found Jett, 16, unconscious in a bathroom late Friday morning. He was taken by ambulance to a Freeport hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to a statement from chief police superintendent Basil Rahming.

 

The teenager had last been seen going into the bathroom on Thursday and had a history of seizures, according to the statement. Police said they are planning an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

 

Another police spokeswoman, Loretta Mackey, said Jett apparently hit his head on the bathtub.

 

A spokeswoman for Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport said she could not release any information because of privacy concerns.

 

Jett was the oldest child of Travolta and his wife, actress Kelly Preston, who also have an 8-year-old daughter. The family arrived on a private plane Tuesday and had been vacationing at their home in the Old Bahama Bay resort community.

 

"The Travolta family has become like family to us at Old Bahama Bay and we extend our deepest sympathies to them," said Robert Gidel, president of Ginn Resorts, the property's owner.

That is just shattering. I can't even imagine. My heart goes out to the Travolta family.

Damn, this year is getting off to a crappy start. Possibly even worse than last year. First, the awful news about Thomas and Patricia and now this. This is just terrible, and I feel awful for the Travoltas. Love them both as actors and it's so sad to see something like this happen to anyone. My sincerest, heartfelt condolences to them and all of their family and friends. I hope it is some consolation for them to know that the world grieves with them at this difficult time.

I have grand-mal epilepsy as did Jett...I have had 26 staples in the back of my head, dislocated my right shoulder twice, broken both of my hands, not to mention the many other misc. scrapes and bruises.....People don't think of epilepsy being able to kill you, but, it can, and if not kill you, then sometimes worse.
