Washington, January 5 (ANI): John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston begged their son Jett to open his eyes and regain consciousness in the rushing ambulance, an Emergency Medical Technician said.

EMT Chief Marcus Garvey had raced to the celebrity couples holiday home, Old Bahama Bay resort, in the Bahamas, where 16-year-old Jett was found unconscious in a bathroom by caretaker Jeff Katharain on January 2.

The teenager, who began suffering from seizures at the age of two and was a toddler when he was diagnosed with rare Kawasaki disease, is thought to have died after hitting his head on a bathtub following a fit.

Jett was later taken to Rand Memorial Hospital, Freeport, where he was pronounced dead.

Garvey revealed that the family had been asked to follow the ambulance, but the pair insisted on being with their son.

“He (John) was holding his hand, saying”Come on baby, come on Jett,” FoxNews quoted him as telling

“They were more distraught, you know, getting him there,”how far is the hospital? How far? How long is it now?” And I said, We”ll be there in about 5 to 7 minutes,” he added.

Garvey further revealed that he had not realised whom was he talking to since the Pulp Fiction star had coloured his short hair.

“I still didn”t know who I was talking to. It was a shock to me,” he added.

During the traumatic ride, Garvey said that Travolta had tapped him on the shoulder and said “Good job, good job”. (ANI)
