Chris Baker's Final Photo

9/22/2008 8:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a photo of Chris Baker just moments before he boarded the Learjet that crashed on takeoff.

Baker sent the cell phone photo at 11:22 ET, 31 minutes before the plane crashed. Baker e-mailed the photo to a friend with the text, "Go hard on the block."

Baker, Travis Barker's assistant, was one of the four people who died in the crash. The video of the jet was shot by Baker before he boarded.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way, TMZ PLEASE TAKE THIS POST DOWN. You've crossed the line of journalism. You've posted the story and updated us on their conditions. I believe that's all we should be entitled to know.

Please Show that You All Still Have Souls Left

I am really confused. TMZ has an R.I.P section where you can look at all the people that have passed away that have been covered by TMZ in the past, and people weren't angry about those. Most people used the comment section as a place to give their condolences to the victims families and friends. I really don't understand why this is so different. Why are you all so angry this time? If informing you of someone's death bothers you so much how come you never stood up and said anything before? They have entire TV shows dedicated to crazy accidents and peoples final moments, why not give them a call? The media reports deaths every single day, they talk about it in detail so please lets not act like this situation is different because there are celebrities involved. If this were regular kids with regular lives you would sit down and watch the 10 o'clock news and I guarantee you wouldn't be so outraged and disgusted. Rather than flipping out use your energy constructively and show the families of these victims the support they need.

The plane on the photo is not the plane that crashed. He's standing in front of a Hawker not a Learjet 60. It was probably on the ramp next to his airplane. The video shows the Learjet that crashed, N999LJ.
