Jett Travolta, the 16-year-old son of John Travolta and Kelly Preston, has died during a family vacation.

The family's attorney, Michael Ossi, confirmed the tragic news, telling Reuters the young man suffered a seizure at the Travolta clan's home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island

A police spokeswoman said Jett apparently banged his head on a bathtub Friday morning. Efforts were made to revive Jett, but he was pronounced dead at Rand Memorial Hospital, police said.

Citing privacy rules, a hospital official declined to release names, but told E! News, "We did have a young gentleman come in dead."

Jett had a history of seizures, according to Ossi. Preston had said her son suffered from Kawasaki disease, which can cause a variety of painful side effects, including seizures, and sometimes lead to heart problems.
The teenager was the couple's oldest child. They also have a daughter, Ella Blue, born in 2000.
