Hard to believe, but the plane crash that nearly killed DJ AM and Travis Barker may actually have saved AM's life.
He tells People doctors at the burn center found a blood clot in his leg that could've killed him if it hadn't been treated. AM says the clot "could have traveled to my heart and I could have died" but docs put a filter in his vein and gave him blood thinners.
"I have a great deal of faith that everything happens for a reason," he says.
