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.

You people and your reactions to this photo and video just illustrates WHY it is here!!! It kind of got me thinking of a line from an old G`n R song: "my words may disturb, but at least it`s a reaction"...
You guys with all these hurt feelings on behalf of the relatives of this man (as if they are reading this anyway right now... Think not!), you guys are probably the same people who said DIE BRITNEY a few months back!!! What about her family??? So I agree with the ones calling you morons, in fact I think you all act brain dead cause you only seem to repeat each other. idiotic and narrow minded words..

"With heavy hearts we offer our deepest condolences to their family and friends

"A Circle of Love"

Life seems to go just fine till a total 90 degree spins
So many victims in this society So much tragedy
Dear Lord youve taken so many of our people ...
Walkin in the Glory Doors of Gold reaching high to the infinit....
Bless those who lay with pain confusion and guilt.
Not knowing what you could of done to change life.

We never really lose you know
When a loved one leaves us here
Our hearts rent with grief and longing
We can only see the empty spaces ...
Left by their passing.
His beloved fat chair,
Bearing the imprint of his body,
That old baggy grey sweater with a cuff unraveled,
Fills your aching soul with his scent
When, weeping,
You bury your face in its soft folds

That silent empty space at the battered oaken table..
Where he once sat, face lit by laughter.
And the bed…
Once a place of love and dark passion
Is a suddenly huge...
Vast white acreage
Of lonely agony..

They don't really leave us you know
We are all of us part
Of loves circle
In a child’s quick laughter
Or the soft fold of a cheek
That certain gesture
We can find them still.
Loving silent guardians
Handfast with all who went before
Those who are to come
Joined forever
In our own circles of love

In Loving Memory of
Lil" Chris Baker
Charles "Che" Still
Sarah Lemmon
James Bland

I did not see this video. I think this video being posted should be for the public. People were killed here. 2 young men are in the hospital. znot Nice. Even if this show nothing TMZ should show some respect!

Isn't this enough already ? People Die everyday, what makes these guys so special, that they have to be on every News station , is it just because they are "Famous" ? Do you really think they would care or lose any sleep at night if any of us died.

Kimberly.. I'd hafta disagree completely with ya on that one.. Shanna is manipulative and extremely conceited, I can completely understand why he wouldn't be with her, and can't imagine that almost losing his life would make him see her in any other light. He's good people, I think he'll find himself a nice girl who doesn't accuse him of messin around every other week and spend every cent she could squeeze outta the guy.

Am I the only one who is wondering who the hell these so-called "celebrities" are here? I mean, who is Chris Baker anyway? The way this is covered, you would think it was somebody who really meant something to the world. Let's move on, people...
