Coroner -- Blunt Force Killed Two Victims

9/22/2008 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The coroner has just released the cause of death for the four victims of Friday night's plane crash in Columbia, SC, and it's horrifying.

The Lexington County Coroner says Chris Baker, Travis Barker's assistant, died of blunt force trauma to the head and neck, and Charles Still, Barker's bodyguard, died of an acute subdural hematoma caused by blunt force trauma to the head.

The two other victims, the pilot and co-pilot, died of smoke and fume inhalation and thermal injuries.

This is actually almost a relief, if anything of this tragedy can be a relief. I only mean, in the years that the survivors have to process this, one of the hardest things will be "could i have saved them?" In the aftermath, you forget the impossible heat of the flames and your own injuries, and the mind tricks you into thinking you could have done more. This report indicates they died on impact, and their friends could not have saved them. Still tragic, but hopefully one less complication in the long road to recovery the two have ahead of them.

So in other words, the pilot and co-pilot burned to death.

That is indeed horrifying.

This is very horrible. My deepest sympathy and condolenses are with the families of those who lost their lives. And, my prayers are with those who are still suffering in the hospital.
