DJ AM released from hospital after plane crash

Travis Barker expected to remain hospitalised for two weeks

Adam ‘DJ AM’ Goldstein has been released from hospital in Augusta, GA after being treated for six days for burns he suffered in a plane crash.

Goldstein was a passenger on a Learjet 60 that crashed during takeoff from a South Carolina airport just after midnight last Saturday (September 20).

Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker also managed to escape the burning wreckage. Barker is currently being treated for burns at the same hospital, and is expected to remain there for two more weeks, according to his friend Jermaine Dupri.

“While he is deeply saddened by the events, he is thankful for all of the love and support he has been receiving from fans and friends worldwide,” Goldstein’s rep, Jenni Weinman, said in a statement. “We ask that you continue to respect his privacy as he rests and heals and mourns the loss of his friends.”

The two crew in the plane- pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31 and co-pilot James Bland, 52- died within minutes of the crash from smoke inhalation and burns, while Chris Baker, 29 and Charles Still, 25 died from the impact of the crash.
