London: Actor John Travolta has described the death of his teenage son Jett as the worst thing that's ever happened in his life. Jett died at the age of 16 in January 2009 from a seizure during a family holiday in the Bahamas, reported BBC online.

"The truth is, I didn't know if I was going to make it. Life was no longer interesting to me, so it took a lot to get me better," he said.

Both his father and his mother Kelly Preston have since confirmed their eldest son was autistic and had a history of seizures.

The couple have two other children: 13-year-old daughter Ella Bleu and three-year-old son Benjamin.

Travolta, 59, said he "didn't want to wake up" following Jett's death and that the Church of Scientology had been pivotal to his recovery.

"I will forever be grateful to Scientology for supporting me for two years solid, I mean Monday through Sunday. They didn't take a day off, working through different angles of the techniques to get through grief and loss, and to make me feel that finally I could get through a day."
