Travolta, Preston share grief over son's death

FREEPORT, Bahamas - John Travolta said yesterday he and his wife Kelly Preston are "heartbroken" over the death of their chronically ill 16-year-old son, who collapsed at the family's vacation home on Grand Bahama.

Police Superintendent Basil Rahming has said a caretaker found Jett Travolta unconscious in a bathroom late Friday morning and he was later pronounced dead at a Freeport hospital.

"We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives," Mr. Travolta and Ms. Preston said in their first public statement, posted on Mr. Travolta's Web site, since Jett's death.

The Bahamas' health minister, Dr. Hubert Minnis, has said that a second, U.S.-certified pathologist will fly in today to assist with the teenager's autopsy.
