Although they remain in critical condition at the Joseph Still Burn Center, Travis Barker and DJ AM are expected to make a full recovery. TMZ reports that they may have saved their own lives by jumping out of the door of the plane immediately after it came to a complete stop. It’s unclear why the other four passengers who died didn’t do the same. The cockpit voice recorder shows that a blown tire may have caused the accident. Investigations are ongoing.
“Reasons could be anything from inflation levels, materials, punctures, design, etc. So we are doing everything in our power to learn what transpired and make recommendations so nothing like this ever happens again.”
PEOPLE also reports that Shanna Moakler rushed to Travis Barker’s side while Mandy Moore rushed to DJ AM’s. Which proves that even tragedies such as this have a silver lining. You know these guys are getting a week of bj’s once they’re discharged from the hospital. It almost makes having 90% of their body charred worth it. Almost.
