    Default Travis Barker and DJ AM Critically Injured in Plane Crash







    Travis Barker and celebrity music spinner, DJ AM were critically injured after their Learjet 60 crashed during takeoff from South Carolina's Columbia Metropolitan Airport, just before midnight on Friday. The plane was headed for Van Nuys, CA.


    The former Blink 182 drummer, Baker, and DJ AM are in critical condition and being treated for severe burns at an Augusta, Georgia burn center. Barker was transported by ground to the burn facility from the site of the crash. DJ AM was airlifted.


    Travis Barker has been burned from the waist down, but he is expected to survive the plane crash. DJ AM's face was severely burned and is being tended to right now.


    Four people died in the crash. The deceased have been identified as pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills, CA co-pilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, CA, Chris Baker, 29, of Studio City, CA, and Charles Still, 25 of Los Angeles, CA. Chris was Travis's assistant.


    Sources tell us Travis Barker and DJ AM saved their own lives after their plane crashed by jumping out the door of the burning plane, almost immediately after the small jet came to a halt.


    The plane crash is still under investigation, however, during a press conference late Saturday morning a spokeswoman for the National Transportation Safety Board revealed that the plane overran the airstrip and proceeded to run into a number of the airport's lights and antenna. Air traffic controllers reportedly "saw sparks coming from the runway" before the crash. Investigators don't know if that was from the aircraft or its engines.


    A South Carolina resident named William Owens was driving down a highway next to the airport when he said he saw a fireball go across the road. He told local TV station WIS News 10:
    "I didn't know what I had seen it was maybe 800 feet in front of me, but as I approached it closer though I made out a fire. By then I was able to see the tail of the jet and I recognized it as a jet," Owens said.
    Owens then described what he saw as he tried to make it to the wreckage.


    "It's in flames and the fuel is running across the road and I had to cross the fuel to get to the two guys that seemed to have been dumped on the highway," Owens said.
    Owens said the two men (Travis and DJ AM!) were running around and stripping down to extinguish themselves. He then asked the men if there was anyone else on board the plane and they said four more were with them.

    "We turned to the jet to try and see if there was anything we could do, but immediately, there was nothing anyone could do," Owens said.
    Travis and AM were in Columbia, South Carolina Friday night for a T-Mobile sponsored concert at Five Points, a popular shopping district.

    It is really sad, but it seems to be a BIG blessing that they managed to get out. Hopefully they'll recover okay.

    UPDATES:

    Both Travis and DJ AM are being treated at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia for extensive burns. The two, no doubt, have received excellent care. The Still facility is reportedly the largest burn center in the country and the third largest in the world.


    Dr. Fred Mullins, the Still Center's medical director, told reporters Sunday morning, "I think these patients are going to make a full recovery. Anybody who can survive a plane crash is very lucky."
    The doctor went on to say that Travis has burns on his torso and lower body, and AM has burns on a portion of his head and arm, but neither sustained any other injuries from the crash.
    Both are currently in "critical but stable" condition.


    The burns the two suffered were classified as second- and third-degree burns.
    The doc would not tell reporters the types of treatment Travis and AM were undergoing at the center. He also would not answer a reporter's question about what percentage of their bodies were burned.


    According to insiders, Travis' fighting spirit was on clear display at the crash site, despite his severe injuries. Travis was supposedly 'defiant after the accident and didn't want to be lifted in a helicopter, but rather an ambulance, so they had to knock him out.'


    Friends of DJ AM reported on Saturday that he was placed in a doctor-induced coma and underwent skin grafts.


    Travis' ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, left Los Angeles Saturday afternoon for Georgia. She's going to be by his hospital bedside to see him through this rough time.


    AM's sister, Lara, and her husband were reportedly on their way to the burn center as well. MTV reported that Nicole Richie, AM's ex-fiancee "is in shock" and that Richie's current beau, Joel Madden, "knows Travis and also feels terrible and hopes they recover. This is terrible news for both of them."
