So awful. Our hearts go out to their family.

John Travolta "Heartbroken" Over Jett's Death

I'm still so sick over the news that John Travolta and Kelly Preston's son, Jett, is gone.

The 16-year-old boy passed away during a family vacation in the Bahamas. He reportedly hit his head in the bathtub on Friday morning and was found by the nanny. Sources say John tried to save his son by performing CPR.

"He didn't want anything to happen to that boy, and he kept on trying to revive him," the family's lawyer, Michael Ossi told People.com. "He did mouth-to-mouth until they had to physically remove John to take Jett to the hospital."

"He never dreamed of this - their relationship was so close," the attorney continued. "He always said 'I'm happy as long as my kids are happy.' He is heartbroken ... To bury your son is the worst thing you can ever do."

Jett had a history of seizures, but it is unclear if the bump on the head caused the seizure or vice versa. An autopsy is being performed.

Just so, so sad.

How awful must it be for John Travolta and his family to return home from the Bahamas after the death of Jett Travolta?

John, Kelly Preston, and their daughter, Ella Blue, 8, flew back to Florida Monday night with Jett's ashes (they have a home in Ocala, Fla.), after the 16-year-old boy was cremated in the Bahamas.

Obie Wilchcombe, a member of the Bahamas parliament and a family friend, told the Associated Press on Tuesday, "Everything was in place, the cremation was completed, and they decided to leave."

Funeral plans have not yet been announced.

We hope they are able to find some peace in the future.
