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.

Although I am not a fan of either Travis Barker or DJ AM, this is still horribly tragic news...my thoughts and prayers are with them and I hope they are able to recover fully from their injuries. I also send thoughts and prayers to the friends and families of those who died.

Wonder if Shanna s willing to take care of Travis, now that he is seriously hurt. Hopefully, she has some shred of human decency for the father of her two kids.

But oh Lord,poor Travis,being left at the mercy of Shanna is a new kind of hell.

Wow    

For the poster who made the "life experience" remark, I guess you could say that to you I probably am old! I'm 40 and probably old enough to be your mom. I would've probably, unfortunately, been making jokes too 25 years ago. I know someone who was in a burn unit. It' ghastly. Probably the worst type of wound you can get. When you age, as your friends and family members go through various trials, you learn some things will never be funny. That's all I meant. I didn't want to make anyone feel bad. It's just that for the 4 who died, their family and friends will never get to say goodbye, either literally or saying goodbye to the body, as a burned body is a devestating thing to see. For the two who lived, they and their loved ones face a very hard road. That's all.

Don't wake me up in a burn unit!
Honestly, I would rather be dead.

My thoughts go out to everyone that was killed. What an awful thing to happen. It's frustrating when young talented people die, yet we see the talentless bimbos parading around without a care in the world. Unfortunately, we're going to be seeing and hearing a lot about Shanna now..ugh. Way to ruin a moment....

Just by looking at the video it's clear to me that the flaps were not set for take-off.

I just don't understand the logic behind acting like a saint on TMZ. This is a tabloid website. If you're going to deliver a sermon, go to a church.
