Travis Barker and DJ AM expected to make full recovery
Musicians Travis Barker and DJ AM are expected to make a fully recovery after suffering burns during a South Carolina plane crash that killed four people, CNN reported.
The former Blink 182 drummer and DJ AM, real name Adam Goldstein, are being treated at the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia. They sustained second and third degree burns in Friday night's crash, Barker to the torso and lower body, Goldstein to the face and arm, said Dr. Fred Mullins, the center's executive director.
Both musicians are expected to make a full recovery, though they could be hospitalized for weeks, Mullins said.
Investigators found evidence that one of the jet's tires may have blown moments before takeoff, Debbie Hersman, the spokeswoman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said.
Several entertainment and gossip sources has also been frequently posting updates on this story.
MTV News reported that Mullins would not comment on the types of treatment Barker and Goldstein were undergoing at the center. Mullins also refused to answer a reporter's question about what percentage of their bodies were burned.
During the press conference, Mullins also read a statement from Barker's and Goldstein's families.
"The families wish to thank fans all over the world for their prayers and concern. Deepest sympathy is expressed to the loved ones who perished in the crash. As the two recuperate and mourn this loss, privacy for them, their families and friends is requested at this time."
