UPDATE (print emboldened for emphasis by Bria):

A friend of Travis Barker and DJ AM has revealed to E! News some grim new details about last night's plane crash, which the two survived but four others did not.

AM is "really, really badly burned," according to the source, who confirms that "his face is very burned." The source adds, "More than 50 percent of his body is burned and the worst is on his face."

The friend also said that Barker was burned "mostly from the waist down."

Both men are in critical but stable condition at the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Ga. E! News was told by the source that, as of this morning, DJ AM was being "kept in an incubator" as part of his treatment in order to maintain a sterile environment and prevent infections.

The source also said that AM was looking forward to coming home last night and, in fact, e-mailed a picture to a friend that showed him standing next to the Learjet right before the ill-fated takeoff. "He sent a picture being like, 'Hey, I'm coming home on this ride.'"

Another source reports that Barker's ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, who was just spotted with him Wednesday night at the Janet Jackson concert in Los Angeles, has left their Calabasas, Calif., home and is headed to Georgia to be with him.

As for Barker's friend and business partner "Lil' Chris" Baker, who died in the crash: E! has learned that Baker was newly married and had a new baby. "He was the sweetest, nicest guy. He was like Travis' right-hand man."

Baker often appeared on Travis and Shanna's MTV reality series Meet the Barkers, which aired in 2005 and 2006. source


If these two survivors didn't have a strong foundation in God, I bet they do now!

I can SAY the survival of DJ AM and the baddest drummer known to Gen Y/Gen X (he gets mad love from my son Tone) le' drummer extroadinaire, unda-cova-brotha-from-anotha-motha Travis Barker is indeed A MIRACLE-sorry y'all but Travis is one of the coolest, most down to earth celebs (unless him and wife are beefin with each other on myspace, lol) there is!

Please know...threats of hell and bible scriptures are futile-look at your church if you don't believe me! Get your 'body of christ' in order and then come talk to me.

Yours in Reason, Bria :)
