DJ AM and Travis Barker Update: Expected to Recover

A positive update after the tragic news about the plane crash DJ AM and Travis Barker were lucky enough to survive that sadly took four other lives. Travis and DJ AM have been treated for second and third degree burns at Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia and are expected to fully recover from the horrific event.

They released a joint statement expressing their deepest sympathy for the families of the deceased and request for privacy at this time. This morning the doctor from the hospital where they are being treated spoke to the press and announced, "Since both Barker and Goldstein are in overall good health and didn't suffer from any other crash-related complications, a full recovery is expected." He also added DJ AM was burned on his arms and part of his head while Barker was burned on his torso and lower body. We wish these two survivors a speedy recovery.

I agree snowbunny - it's a terrible situation. 4 people have lost their lives and many more must be suffering right now over the sudden loss of a loved one. 2 men are recovering from serious injuries and are probably in great physical and emotional pain. I can't imagine what they must be going through having witnessed their friend's die. I doubt they feel as though angels are watching over.

I just heard rumors that are flying around that say Travis Barker is Dead, that Gavin Degraw was on the plane, that chris little Chris Baker, Sarah Lemmon, James Bland, and Charles Still were killed.

This is good news, but what a rough recovery it will be. I agree with Anabj, you took the words out of my mouth; while this is certainly heartwarming news, it's almost an insult to say they were "blessed" or had "angels on their shoulders." What does that say about the other four who died? God didn't favor them, or their angels were on a cig. break when the plane crashed? It just makes me a little sad to hear things like that. Most likely the fact that they survived did have to do with where they were sitting on the plane when it went down, not a supernatural force.

The wife wasn't in labor. She's not even pregnant. It was misinformation. They have a two year old. Still sad though.

They were certainly blessed! Why no information about his mate who was going home to met his new baby, his wife was in labor!! How awful must that be?? I really feel for her.

I think that to survive or not is just luck or where are your seats and how the plane crashes. No angels involved, when four people were killed.

I just pray Travis is able to recover emotionally, he lost two close friends... He must accept over time not to feel 'guilty' for surviving. Just pray for him and for Adam. Send them a card or something. It always helps patients to know they are not alone; that we're rooting for them!
