John Travolta's Dog Tragedy
Just a year and a half after the unexpected death of son Jett, John Travolta was hit by yet another tragedy when the family's two dogs were killed in a freak accident last week. According to Radaronline.com, members of the Travolta clan were preparing to depart Bangor International Airport when an employee accidentally ran over the canines. The Bangor Daily News was provided details about the dogs' deaths in an email that partially read, "At approximately 1 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2010 an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA. While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the airplane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident. Out of respect for the family's privacy the city will make no further comment." The director of the Maine airport chalked the incident up to an accident, saying, "The airport takes safety very seriously. Many flights come and go without incidents. Clearly, this is an unfortunate accident. Our deepest sympathies are with the family."
