ENQUIRER WORLD EXCLUSIVE: John reveals son’s tragic final moments in an official police statement.

The ENQUIRER has obtained John Travolta‘s statement to police, which reveals for the first time, in his own words, how he bravely battled to save his dying 16-year-old son. Jett.

The document is a dramatic never-before-seen minute-by-minute account of the crisis, in which the star appears to have done everything he could to bring his son back to life.

In the three-page document signed by Travolta, the Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 star acknowledges that his son was autistic.

The autism disclosure adds to the family’s previous claims that Jett suffered from Kawasaki disease, a rare illness that affects the blood vessels in young children. Travolta is a leading Scientologist, and Scientology doesn’t always agree with autism as a diagnosis.

Travolta divulged the details of Jett’s final minutes in an official interview with the Royal Bahamas Police at the Central Detective Unit in Nassau on Feb. 25.

Jett died on Jan. 2 while vacationing with his parents and his sister Ella, 9, at the family’s townhome in the Old Bahama Bay Resort.
