Travolta's eldest son Jett was pronounced dead during the family's New Year break in the Bahamas. It was sudden as his nanny had found him unconscious on the bathroom's floor. Their 16-year-old boy was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease and was also autistic. With a long history of seizures, this one was proved to be his last.
