It was supposed to be a joyous getaway to celebrate the New Year. But a family holiday for John Travolta, wife Kelly Preston and their two children — son Jett, 16, and daughter Ella, 8 — turned into tragedy when a shocking accident claimed Jett's life. After having a seizure in the family's home at the Old Bahama Bay Resort on Grand Bahama Island, Jett is believed to have hit his head in the bathroom. He was later discovered unconscious.
"I did everything I could to keep [him] alive," John reportedly said. But his efforts were to no avail. At Rand Memorial Hospital, Jett was pronounced dead on arrival.
Sadly, Jett's death was just the beginning of the family's nightmare.
