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.

Kobe, if you want to make lame jokes, audition for a talent show. I know someone who was in a burn unit. To help regenerate skin, as I understand it, they scrape the old skin off daily. It's extremely painful and the screaming can be heard all over the floor. Horrible.

Real lucky. They were in a plane crash and burned pretty bad. I don't consider that very lucky. If they just walked off without a scratch, now that would be lucky! Most of barker's burns were bleow the waste so most of his tats are just fine. And I'm sure his penis is just fine or he wouldn't have been up walking around now as reported. As far as dj am it is now known that he will be fine too , and is not disfigured. Too bad for all of you rubbernecks that love tragedy. I doo feel sorry for the people who did die> Now they are unlucky!!

My heart is broken. Burn pain is relentless. Mike - if you are trying to be funny - your not. There are children involved that think their daddy is dead. Have a heart - or better yet - go to a burn unit - it is beyond suffering.

Rainbow-Mike is being an ass. Travis Barker and DJ AM are alive, however the other 4 on board died.

FI Baker: That wasn't funny the first time, when everyone ignored you, and your desperate attempt at humor just failed again. I truly hope you are never in a burn unit. It's HORROBLE. These men's lives will NEVER be the same again.

Thats what you get when you fly in a link sausage with a 1000 gallon fuel tank. As far as travis, what does the guy actually contribute. There are plenty of guys with over tatted bodies who can wear their hats sideways and be ignorant. I feel sorry for the highly trained pilots having to fly such a piece of junk jet.

Kobe and FIBiker I hope you both rot in hell. No, better than that...I hope you both burn in hell so that you will know the excruciating pain that both DJ AM and Travis are experiencing at this very moment.

Mike, please get a life.

Sentence structure: Travis Barker is loved. He's a husband and father. There are little kids who feel that their Daddy contributes plenty.

Has anyone else put two and two together. Travis was burned from the waist down...DJ AM was burned on the face...almost as if they were in the same location...hmmm? Maybe AM was just paying Travis back for getting him out of the clubs?
