John Travolta -- I Tried to Revive My Son

9/23/2009 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Travolta just described to the jury in the extortion trial how he desperately tried to save his son's life.

Travolta testified his nanny woke him up at around 10:15 AM on January 2 and told him his son was unconscious in the bathroom. Travolta says when he went downstairs, he saw Jett on the ground and one of the caretakers was doing chest compressions.

Travolta says he performed CPR on Jett, ultimately to no avail.

Kelly Preston was in the courtroom as John testified.

More updates as the testimony unfolds.

UPDATE: John and Kelly just walked out of the courthouse and got into an SUV. We're told the court is taking a lunch break. Travolta is expected to return later this afternoon.

Looks like boring John Travolta info is replacing the constant barrage of boring Michael Jackson related info.

What a nightmare that I can't even imagine!! Many blessings to this poor family! Having to do CPR on your own child. As a parent, it's almost too much to have to deal with. Having those memories locked in your brain for the rest of your life! I don't give a da.. what his "beliefs" are. If you can't feel compassion for this guy, there is something REALLY WRONG with you.

Absolutely shameful to make a grieving parent relive that kind of hell. Those men deserve the highest punishment. Heartless, shameful and pure evil!

My heart aches for the Travolta family. To have to re-live such a traumatic event. The pain of losing their son is enough pain and grief to last a lifetime. As it is you already replay it in your head every day all day. But to have to re-live it in this format for this reason is absolutely appauling. I hope these people get the MAX! These people deserve to do HARD LABOR.

my son choked on a hot dog when he was young...luckily i was able to dislodge it. It haunts me every day to think what could have happened. I cant imagine what the Travoltas are going through. To hear some of the sarcastic and thoughtless comments that people say and write is testament on the foul character of losers in our society.
