When Garvey arrived at the Travolta's home, he tells that Jett had been moved into a hallway and a doctor was performing CPR on the boy. Jett was unconscious and had a hematoma. "There was a minimum amount of blood," Garvey said, describing it as consistent with someone who had just had a seizure.

Garvey told us that Jett had no pulse and there was no respiration.

Kelly Preston asked: "Is he breathing? Are you helping him? Are you getting him back? Is he coming back?"
