Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy was removed from a post-swearing-in ceremony luncheon in National Statuary Hall Tuesday due to what is being called a medical emergency.

Kennedy, who is fighting malignant brain cancer,  experienced a seizure, but is resting comfortably, according to Dr. Edward Aulisi, chairman of neurosurgery at Washington Hospital Center, where Kennedy is hospitalized.

“Senator Edward Kennedy experienced a seizure today while attending a luncheon for President Barack Obama in the U.S. Capitol,” Dr. Aulisi said Tuesday afternoon. “After testing, we believe the incident was brought on by simple fatigue. Senator Kennedy is awake, talking with family and friends, and feeling well. He will remain at the Washington Hospital Center overnight for observation, and will be released in the morning.”

John Travolta’s 16-year-old son Jett has died while vacationing with his parents in the Bahamas.

 Jett suffered a seizure at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island. A spokeswoman for the local police said Jett banged hit his head on a bathtub Friday morning. TMZ broke the story this afternoon and Rand Memorial Hospital confirmed the death.

“At this point, we know that John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s only son, Jett, had a seizure at around 10 AM this morning,” the family’s attorney Michael Ossi told CNN. “All attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.”

The Travolta family has long denied gossip that Jett had autism, maintaining that the boy instead had Kawasaki Syndrome, an inflammatory disorder of the artery walls which often leads to heart disease. Jett, who had a history of seizures, was the eldest child of Travolta and Preston. The couple also have a daughter, Ella Blue, who is 8.

Police have announced that Jett Travolta’s unconscious body was discovered by the caretaker, Jeff Michael Kathrain, this morning.
