Heard about that.
It's pretty insane.
Yeah, that's really horrible.
Seizures are a scary thing. A kid had two of them on different occasions during my math class last year...terrifying experience.
Sad, sad situation...
So horrible. I lost my brother to suicide a few years ago. This has to be really rough.
Where was the rest of the family? He was seen going to the bathroom but no one thought to check up on him when he didn't come out the whole night? Slipping and hitting his head on the bathtub should produce a loud sound. It's a little odd that a person saw him going in but didn't bother checking on him when he/she heard the noise.
The connection is that it's hard to lose a family member. Ella Bleu is losing a brother too.
this is just sad especially more sadder in the start of the new year.
No- it wasn't. I was just saying that any death that young is horrible.
Hope the family are coping alright.
Presumably he had his own bedroom and bathroom. What is strange about saying goodnight before you go to have a bath? Nobody would expect to see him until the morning.
As the parent of a severe epileptic, I can say that it never stops being a terrifying experience. A great blow for the family.
Oh that is so sad.
Prayers go out to the Travolta family.
Although, and I'm probably a bad person for even thinking this, but John Travolta is a Scientologist, and they have weird ideas when it comes to medicine. I can't help but wonder if this could've been prevented
Wow, this is so sad. As the parent of a 17 year old, I don't know what I'd do. Parents aren't supposed to outlive their children.
Tell me about it...
Man that stinks, my condolescenes to the family.
Well, there's a least half her cover blown.
Any death is sad, some more than others.
i am sorry to hear that. very sad
Seizure's can happen extremely fast. Typically the one being affected can feel it coming on before hand, but can do absolutely nothing about it. Not even vocalize that they feel it coming on. It's typically described as a "glow" or "ora" after the fact. I have a some-what medical background (not proclaiming to be a medical genius though) and have seen patients have full tonic-clonic seizures right in front of me. They don't have control of themselves. All it takes is one hard hit to the head and the patient could be done for. I really wouldn't put too much blame on the family here. Seizures typically don't last all that long (matter of 30 seconds to a minute or two at the most from what I have learned/seen.
Accidents happen. And unfortunately this is one that couldn't be helped unless the bathroom was lined with pillows, and someone was there when it started to control his body.
