    Jett Travolta, 16, the son of the famous John Travolta ans Kelly Preston, has died during a family vacation in Bahamas. He is believed to have died following a fall after a seizure and hitting his head, possibly on the bathtub, according to the authority on Friday. A house caretaker found the teenager lying unconscious in a bathroom late Friday morning, and was immediately taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. Jett had a history of seizures.

    Preston has once said that Jett became very ill when he was 2 and was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease. Kawasaki disease is an illness that leads to inflammation of the blood vessels in young children. Since both Travolta and Preston are practicing Scientologists, just like Tom Cruise, a detoxification programme based on the teachings from the Church of Scientology had helped to improve his health. Family friend and attorney, Michael McDermott told the Ocala-Star Banner that Travolta was "broken-up" and Kelly was been very quiet. Travolta and Preston had a nother daughter, Ella Bleu, 8.

    All my prayer and wishes of condolence to Mr and Mrs Travolta.
