Condition Update -- Barker and DJ AM

9/20/2008 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned 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.

We're also told the tragedy is all the worse because one of the passengers who died, Chris Baker, Travis' assistant on "Meet the Barkers," was married recently and has a new baby.

This is sad news-I hope they both make a full recovery. Burns are a horrific and lengthly healing process, and I pray that both boys will be kept as pain free as possible.My heart and sympathies go out to the families of the lives lost.

Wow    

e! is reporting that DJ AM's face is very badly burned and that 50% of his body is burned. He is in an incubator as infection can be deadly. If he survives this physically, he'll still have to emotionally adjust to how he looks now. Barker appears to be a little better off, though they are both in for a painful, tough time. God will be with you both.

It was reported that DJ Am was able to call his mom from the ambulance. He's now in a doctor induced coma. He is burned over 50% of his body with his face being the worst. Thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Go to astrochicks dot com or E! for latest updates.

How very unfortunate for all involved. My heart goes out to those with losses from this terrible accident, and wish a speedy recovery to both survivors. There have been a few posts that caught my attention, and in a very negative way. I am not referring to those wishing ill of the two men mentioned as that is for attention that I have no intention of giving.. my issue is with the pig-headed losers with the comments about the female pilot. How dare you? Accidents happen all the time, and, let's face it, the majority of airplane pilots are men. This horrific occurance was not the fault of the pilot simply because she was a woman. To imply that a vagina makes a person less able to pilot an aircraft is just wrong, and to disrespect one of the casualties in that way is disgusting. Grow up.

God Bless the families.

I guess the coma was because of the pain? Thanks for the update, astrochicks.com.

I was just finnishing up twisting a Joint, When I heard an explosion. I thought it was AM who was cooking up some Meth and Something went wrong. Next thing I know is I'm lying on the pavement in the middle of the Highway with my pecker on fire. I will get back to you all later as I am having my Genitalia worked on.
