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.

Rochester at 8:55AM: Doctors try to take kids off anti-seizure meds after a while yes, IF they only had a few mild seizures, to see if it was maybe a fluke, something they grow out of, BUT Jett had on average four grand mal seizures a week. Very different situation. You do the research, that many severe seizures can cause brain damage.

. Once upon a time... on Larry King ...Whorefest...

Travolta's brother thought Jett was autistic.
The autopsy didn't conduct body fluid analysis....therefore an incomplete examination.
You CAN'T determine Kamakazi Syndrome WITHOUT said above.tests
Kamakazi syndrome is NOT a chronic disease but has chronic Reactions.
The Travolta's want to cremate their son immediately.
Larry King states...paraphrasing...that the parents only real concern is that their child
has died ... (therefore...not caring what they actually died from?)
My Sherlock Holmes conclusion would be...
The parents know what he died from...
The parents don't want the public to know what he died from...
And....actually....it's none of our business...what he died from.

Exactly! That's the exact same way I took that statement. It almost seems as if the parents KNEW why he died. If it were my child, I would want to know EVERYTHING about WHY he died. Very strange. They are definetly hiding something. For all we know, that child was murdered and the Bahamian government helped cover it up.

On a side note, ways to tell posters are Scientologists trying to do damage control:
1. I'm not a scientologist BUT ....
2. It's my first time on this site and my last...
3. Leave the family ALONE....
4. I can't believe TMZ won't let this story die...
5. You don't know the history of Kawasaki, I do... LOL... sound familiar with Tom Cruise and Matt Lauer...
6. I'm not a fan of the COS but...
7. Leave them alone, they have the right to freedom of religion...

Just a few of the many ways to tell that so many of these comments are coming from the Cult's camp. Just be aware.

Um Hello???    

81. The coroner's that did the autopsy said that there was no trauma to the head. Enough is enough, you are making up stories now to make people look like heroes.

Actually they are not making anything up. The EMT on Nancy Grace last night also said that Jett had head trauma consitant with having a seizure and hitting the head. The Travoltas lawyer also said that Jett had head trauma and was bloody. So no, as much as you would like to try and get people to believe that TMZ is full of it, they are not.

Society, has a duty to inspect and evaluate any sudden unexpected death. How do we know the nannies didn't abuse this kid in secret? How do we know he wasn't given sleeping pills so everyone could have the night off? Why does this happen in the Bahamas...what are the chances? There should be a full public accounting for his death as for any other helpless dependent child or individual who dies suddenly. I would think any responsible grieving parent would demand this. Sorry to say this, but I think the Travoltas actions speak more of what is good for them, rather than for Jett.

How sad to be found with a pulse. Folks this is where neglect comes in, had he been checked on by his parents, no not his mannies, this young man would still be alive. By Travolta's own admission, he does go to bed at wierd hours such as 5:30 am, but also requires little sleep. And what kinda mother does not at least peak at their son first thing upon waking knowing he has special needs. Found with a pulse, to bad no one bothered to check on him. I hope this child died fast and had little sufffering. RIP

SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE SICK, YOU KNOW THAT? I HOPE THAT YOU NEVER, EVER HAVE TO GO THROUGH SUCH AN EXPERIENCE LIKE THIS FAMILY HAS. YOU THINK YOU HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS, YOU DON'T! THIS WAS A TEENAGE BOY. YOU HEAR THAT - A TEENAGE BOY! HIS MOTHER, FATHER AND NANNIES COULD NOT INVADE HIS PRIVACY BY ESCORTING HIM TO THE BATHROOM. EVEN IF THEY COULD, WHO'S TO SAY THAT HIS DEATH COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED?

DEATH CAN BE SUDDEN OR LINGERING. WE ARE ONLY HUMANS. WE HAVE NO WAY TO MANIPULATE OR CONTROL THE MANNER OF DEATH....PERIOD!

ATLEAST THIS CHILD SPENT HIS LAST MOMENTS WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. SOME PEOPLE ARE NOT THAT FORTUNATE. PEOPLE DIE EACH DAY SUDDENLY WITHOUT THOSE AROUND THEM THAT LOVE THEM. JETT WAS BLESSED TO FEELS HIS MOTHER AND FATHER'S TOUCH ON HIS WAY OUT OF THIS WORLD.

SO STOP WITH THE NONSENSE! LET THIS FAMILY GRIEVE IN PEACE. I THINK THAT THEY, ALONG WITH THE MEDICAL HELP, DID ALL THEY COULD DO TO REVIVE HIM. THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY HERE, JUST A FAMILY COPING WITH A LOSS.

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE ANY OF THIS GOSSIP. THE ONLY PEOPLE I WILL BELIEVE CONCERNING JETT'S DEATH WOULD BE HIS PARENTS. THEY WILL SPEAK OUT IN DUE TIME.

They are actors for crying out loud, of course they know how to present themselves in front of people. As far as their loving pictures, I smile when the camera is on me with my kids too. Fact is, he had a pulse and could have been saved if only his parents ACTED like parents and checked on him. Not to mention they choose scientology over love, or the child would have been medicated.

What?    

Okay, people get smart. TMZ provides tabloid reporting like Esquire. Therefore, they could easily report that Jett's brain was taken by alien to study it. TMZ is not a valid place to get your news from. At least post as if you are aware of that.

Hey Millz...did you also believe Casey Anthony when she spoke of how a nanny abducted Caylee? Guess what? There are bad, abusive and neglectful parents and nannies out there...and I would think the Travolta's would have done everything in their power to understand the reasons for his death, and that would take some time to do proper analysis. This is shameful.

Um Hello???    

TMZ is not the only source reporting these things. They are on TV, and all over the media, not just tabloid sites. If you don't want to believe it then don't that is up to you but they are reporting facts. If they weren't reporting facts they would be sued by more than just the Travoltas, by the Scientolofreaks as well.

Here is an update - NOT from TMZ - but let me guess they are lieing also? Give me a break.

Travolta family returns to US with son's remains
30 minutes ago

FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) — Actor John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston are back in Florida with the remains of their 16-year-old son.

A Bahamian parliament member and family friend says the couple left the island chain Monday night after receiving an urn with Jett Travolta's ashes.

Travolta and Preston returned to Ocala, Florida, where they have a home, Obie Wilchcombe told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Authorities in the Bahamas performed an autopsy Monday but didn't release a cause of death for the teen, who was found unconscious Friday in the couple's vacation home in Grand Bahama. But an undertaker told the AP that the death certificate said "seizure" was the cause of death.

Funeral plans have not been announced

Not cool on the Jett Travolta Myspace accounts. No way it could really be him as he could not read, write, or even speak properly. The boy had severe autism. Too bad his parents chose their cult over his health and wellbeing.

What?    

No TMZ is not the ones covering this story. The different is the reliable stations are not covering their stories every 10 minutes. As long as their reporting is not slanderdous, the are not libel for a lawsuit. The reliable or reputable reports are providing names of authorized person's statement. TMZ is merely repeating over coverage (I sincerely doubt anyone is speaking to them directly) or posting unreliable sources.

Check out the NY Post. JT supposedly said, "God, please help me!"

He promotes beliefs that are polar opposite of God's teaching. Either this is some more lame info his handlers are distributing to make him sound not so COS-crazy or JT has more screws loose than I imagined.

My God! Have any of you people listened to John and Kelly talk about their children over the past few years? They adored them. Go back and wathch old interviews and you will hear John tell how important it was that he spend at least two and a half hours of quality time a day with Jett. They were not ashamed of him, they were protecting him. Please remember that you are lashing out at a sweet little girl that just lost her big brother and also parents who are experiencing somethhing I don't think some of us could even survive. Please send thoughts of love their way......God knows they need it.
