McCarthy understands Travoltas grief after having faced similar tragedyJanuary 15th, 2009 - 3:05 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, January 15 (ANI): Jenny McCarthy understands devastated couple John Travolta and his wife Kelly Prestons grief following the death of their young son, for the model herself lost her son after he suffered a seizure.
The grieving celebrity couple recently bade their 16-year-old Jett a final goodbye after the teenager died from a seizure during a family holiday in the Bahamas.
McCarthy revealed that the Travolta tragedy sent her back in the dreadful time when her young Evan once went into cardiac arrest following a seizure.
“My stomach flipped (when I heard the news)… Evan also, after a seizure, went into cardiac arrest, where I lost him for two minutes, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
The actress-activist further revealed that she could imagine what the pair must have gone through as experts tried to revive their son.
“I too watched the paramedics do CPR on Evan, and didn”t know if he was going to come back, she said.
“We did get him back and then he suffered another seizure last year, when we had to put Evan in a coma for four days, so he wouldn”t go into cardiac arrest.
So I live on that edge that they (Travolta and Preston) have lived with Jett for all those years,” she added. (ANI)
