Jett Travolta Found with Pulse

1/6/2009 11:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

People in the bathroom trying to revive Jett Travolta believe they detected a "faint pulse" during the rescue effort.

We've now learned specifics about the circumstances surrounding Jett's death. The bathroom where John Travolta's son was found has a small toilet area with a door. Jett was found in that area with the door closed.

Jett had suffered a seizure and struck either the toilet or the wall as he collapsed. He was "bleeding in several areas," including his mouth. He had no cuts but did have bruises on his body. Jett had also been bleeding internally.

A funeral home official said the body was in "great shape" and showed "no sign of head trauma." In fact, we're told there was a considerable amount of blood after the resuscitation efforts but it could have been wiped clean after he died, and the color of Jett's skin could have masked bruises, since Jett had been dead for three days before the autopsy was performed.

have any of you ever lost a child, i bet not, it feel like someone punched you in the chest so you can't breathe and then ripped your heart out while you are gasping for air, that is just a little piece of how it feels, so keep all your horrible thoughts to yourself unless you know the true facts, may the lord be with them every breathe they must have to take through this most difficult time.

What is the deal with celebrity kids dying in the Bahamas? We all remember Anna Nicole and her poor son. Doesn't this all just seem too suspicious?!? Are people really doing this and are the Bahamians lying about it and covering up the evidence? Why did the Travolta's have the kid cremated? What are they hiding? I really hope none of this is true but word to you celebrity kids, stay off that island cause you might be coming back in an urn!

I'm not a Scientologist. Not trying to discredit anyone either. Just voicing my opinion.
Show some maturity and a little respect. Stop writing about it.

I wonder if someone might be totally misinterpreting the autopsy, thinking that petechial hemorrhage means internal bleeding. Petechial hemorrhage is an effect of gran mal seizures. However, this most likely does NOT mean there would be blood around or on the body. See this link for a photo of petechial bleeding. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/petechiae/HQ01208

A grand mal seizure lasting more than five minutes, or immediately followed by a second seizure, can result in brain damage or death.

What’s not at question here is the pain of this family. What is at question is that seizure and household cleaners are not medically indicated with Kawasaki Disease. What is medically indicated and more likely is that 1 in 4 adolescents with Autism develop seizure. Since the Scientology organization does not believe in Psychiatry or Psychotropic medication, and subsequent Psychiatric disorders - - if the death of this child has possibly been caused by non-scientific healthcare practices adhered to by Scientologists then the Travolta family may live with the fact that they inadvertently murdered their own child.

To the likes of 'Freaks' (yes YOU are) and 'Critically' and the other morons on here who have nothing better to do than blame, judge, assume and create fantasy conspiracies..you should be ashamed of yourselves, but since you lack heart, conscience, respect and sensitivity I doubt you would even know how to feel shame. You losers will never have the intellect to be a physician (have any of you even completed Grade 9??) so quit making fools of yourselves trying to diagnose a complete stranger. How dare you blame the parents for ignoring their son while they were 'partying'..that is absolute BS and totally irresponsible of you to even suggest that. The truth here is that you are so jealous that a child actually had the absolute love you never did makes you nasty judgemental trolls. No one cared to look after you so you now feel justified to blame a family who took excellent care of their son and had people with him at all times..so sorry you didnt have 2 nanny's you whiny trolls! The boy obviously had the ability to go to the washroom without assistance so how dare you blame the people who were there..they did not know this could happen and seizures do happen and there is no one to blame for negligence. How dare you blame the parents for not having their son on medication when they had him on meds for years! But since you are all such experts I am sure you are qualified to know exactly what the boy should have been taking? Yes, you are God, slumming on TMZ right? It is deplorable that you losers continue to stir the pot and make nasty accusations..how very empty your own miserable lives must be..it shows much about your lack of character and what failures you are as human beings. You are so jealous of good people who have a better life than you could have ever dreamed of that you lower yourselves to gutter level and attack them while they GRIEVE THE LOST OF THEIR BEAUTIFUL SON! Dont you make yourselves gag? I mean how utterly awful people you are and how sad for the rest of us that you waste space on this planet! The irony is you attack the family for their beliefs when the pathetic thing is you losers dont believe in anything (but your own inflated ego and TMZ of course) Take a good look at yourselves..you are very very ugly within.

I agree Donnie...Let it go!

John Kennedy died of a few bullets. People die,,, they get shot all the time. They should have just let that go for Jackie and the kids sake, and left the family in peace to grieve.

Don't these people know there is war in Gaza? Look there, not here, and don't pay any attention to the old fat man behind the curtain pulling the levers, Dorothy.

Yeah, since they are high paid high ranking celebrities we should let it go, and that's that. I find it sickening, that just because John Travolta is well know that his son's death and ashes should be swept under the rug. I blame the parents for being neglectful in leaving him in the tub and NOT checking up on him. KNOWING he went in there the night before. If he had history of seizures, wouldn't he be watched 24/7. I also blame Scientology in this matter too, regardless if the media is too squeamish to bring it up, because Scientology is popular for suing people. The parents know about their beliefs in Scientology and it's so sad that they had to make their son an example. I believe John Travolta was in denial that his son was Autistic, because in the Scientology believes, his son wouldn't be perfect.
QUOTE:
Kenny claims he met Travolta at his restaurant in February, and, after "comping" the movie star and his daughter a meal per restaurant policy for celebrities, he asked him, "as one autistic child's father to another," if he "was doing anything special in terms of therapy" for Jett. Aghast, Travolta responded, "Well, we involve him in the arts." Then, he offered to send Kenny a book, and high-tailed it out of the restaurant.

"If I ever received a Scientology book from him [Travolta], I'd find him, and throw it back at him," says Kenny. "Scientology is keeping him from acknowledging his son's autism. They see it as a weakness. That's what the space aliens are telling him I guess."

Joking aside, the Kennys are "disgusted by" Travolta. They claim that Travolta has turned down invitations to participate in autism fundraisers, and most recently refused to participate in a local celebrity golf tournament if a connection to autism advocacy was promoted. The organizers of the charity tournament scheduled at the Golden Hills Country Club in November are alleged to have changed the billing from an autism event to the more generic "fundraiser for disabled children" to accommodate the star. Calls to event organizer, the Family Resources Coalition, were not returned by post time.

The Kennys also claim that Kelly and John "let Jett sit in front of video games all day eating junk food, while they eat the best organic food money can buy. They exclude Jett from all social events because they are embarrassed."

"Once," reports Kenny, "when Kelly took him to the movies, Jett started to have a meltdown and Kelly pointed at the nanny and ordered, 'Take care of it.'"

"Jett does not speak at all," confirms Kenny. "He has not even been taught how to communicate. We struggle every week to pay for our daughter's therapy. How dare he [Travolta] ruin his own son's chances of recovering! We want to get the word out on this."

I agree, all these people who are releasing information are trying to publicity seek. Let the family mourn in peace they obviously loved their son more than life itself and would have done anything to have him with them. They are suffering enough without erroneous facts being published about a very tragic event being dissected in the public. They would have done anything to save him and leave it at that!!!!!

This is a tragedy that no family, famous or otherwise, should have to ever go through. Everyone. the press included, needs to be respectful and keep thier distance. The family needs to deal with everything in private and grieve in thier own way. Following celebraties is one thing, invading thier lives for a photo or storyline about a death is sick.

TM post 35 "how dare you blame the people who were there..they did not know this could happen"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes they DID know this could happen! He had a history of seizures! Why in the heck do you think he had 2 nannies to begin with? He went in the bathroom at 10p.m. and was not found until the next morning at 10a.m. HE WAS NOT BEING WATCHED LIKE HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE. HE WAS NOT ON MEDS LIKE HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN. What part of "child neglect" do you not understand you stupid Scientologist?
