John Travolta's 16 Year Old Son Dies

John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston's 16 year old son, Jett, passed away suddenly today.  They were on a family vacation in the Bahamas and first reports are that he had a seizure after falling and hitting his head in the bathtub.

Jett had suffered seizures in the past and was rumored to be autistic, though the family denied it saying he suffered from something called Kawasaki disease.  It's an inflammatory disorder of the artery walls that can lead to heart disease.

An autopsy will be done on Monday to determine what exactly happened to young Jett.  No matter what the cause, this is a terribly sad situation and my thoughts go out to their family.

No matter what the situation, I'm heart broken to hear this news.
