Due to the horrifying plane crash that DJ AM, Travis Barker, and at least four others had to endure early Friday morning, the DJ and former Blink 182 drummer are both in serious or critical condition. DJ AM has had to be placed in a drug-enduced coma due to the extent of his injuries and work that needs to be done and Travis is also in serious condition because he has also suffered extensive burns. From Celebitchy,
“DJ AM “was completely terrified and traumatized” after his jet crash early Friday, but he was conscious long enough inside the ambulance to call his mother, a source tells Usmagazine.com.
During the emotional phone call, DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, let her know he was injured and going to the hospital, the source says.
He is currently in a doctor-induced coma so he can undergo skin grafts in an attempt to repair some of the extensive burn damage.
The medical staff considers him lucky to be alive, as the crash killed four people and also severely injured Travis Barker. (TMZ.com reports Barker was burned from the waist down.)
Meanwhile, a pal tells Us Goldstein’s ex fiancee Nicole Richie “wishes only the best for Adam and hopes he recovers from this.”
Travis Barker has been married once before to Shanna Moakler and the two have a son and a daughter together. And seeing as how DJ AM has been engaged to Nicole Richie, I’m sure that she has more to say than that but I suppose even in Tinseltown, not all things need to be made public. It sure is a sad story though for everybody all around. It sounds like DJ AM is in the worst condition of the two although very little details are being leaked for privacy reasons, obviously. I guess though that this proves that no matter who you are or how big you are, how famous your friends are – when you’re in trouble of the biggest kind, you want your mom. It breaks your heart to hear about that phone call.
