The new year brought tragedy to the Hollywood power couple of John Travolta and Kelly Preston when their teenage son died suddenly today while vacationing with his family in the Bahamas. He was 16.

Jett Travolta suffered a seizure while staying at their vacation home in the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island according to the family’s lawyer, Michael Ossi. TMZ reports that Jett allegedly hit his head on the bathtub when he collapsed.

According to a police report, the family’s caretaker, Jeff Michael Kathrein, discovered his body at approximately 10 AM this morning, and he was rushed to Rand Memorial Hospital.

Ossi revealed to TMZ that attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Jett had a history of seizures. Several reports claimed that he was also autistic or had Kawasaki Syndrome, a form of vasculitis. Doctors will perform an autopsy to confirm the cause of death.

He was the eldest son of the couple who married in 1991. They also have an eight-year-old daughter, Ella.
