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.

Wow    

AP 's website makes no mention of Barker's death. Mike's post is likely/hopefully a hoax. Go do something productive, Mike.

4 killed in SC plane crash; drummer, DJ injured

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina officials say four California residents died in the fiery Learjet crash that also critically injured former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and celebrity DJ AM.

The Lexington County coroner said Saturday that pilot Sarah Lemmon of Anaheim Hills and co-pilot James Bland of Carlsbad died. Also killed were passengers Chris Baker, 29, of Studio City, and Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles.

Authorities say the plane carrying six people was departing shortly before midnight Friday when air traffic controllers reporting seeing sparks. The plane headed for Van Nuys, Calif., went off a runway, through a fence and crashed on a nearby road.

Barker and DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, were in critical condition at a burn center in Augusta, Ga

I worked on "Meet the Barkers" so knew Little Chris very well. My heart is breaking. Yes, they were pains in my ass but Travis is an incredibly loving father and Little Chris was beside himself at the thought of becoming a father. My thought and prayers are with their families, especially their very young children.
