Dj Am Leaves Hospital Week After Place Crash

by | 27 September 2008

DJ Adam Goldstein - otherwise known as DJ AM - has been released from hospital a week after a plane crash that left four people dead.

Goldstein and former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker were left with second- and third-degree burns after the Learjet in which they were travelling crashed into a road while trying to take off, leaving its pilot, co-pilot and two of Barker's staff dead.

Goldstein, a former boyfriend of Nicole Richie, has now left a Georgia hospital, though Barker has not yet been discharged.

The DJ's spokeswoman Jenni Weinman said he was "deeply saddened" by the crash.

Goldstein was "thankful for all of the love and support he has been receiving from fans and friends," she added.

Goldstein and Barker had performed a free concert in Columbia, South Carolina under the name TRVSDJ-AM and were en route to California when the crash occurred.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration said earlier this week that air traffic controllers reported seeing sparks coming off the aircraft as it attempted to leave the runway.

And according to Debbie Hersman, of the National Transportation Safety Board, a cockpit voice recording suggests that the plane's crew may have tried to abort take-off having heard a probable tyre blowout.

Barker and Goldstein were the only survivors of the crash which led to the deaths of pilot, Sarah Lemmon, 31; co-pilot, James Bland, 52; Barker's assistant, Chris Baker, 29, and Charles Still, 25, Barker's security guard.

According to South Carolina police lieutenant Josh Shumpert, Goldstein and Barker were forced to slide down the right wing of the crashed aircraft to escape the blaze.

Sources say Barker's ex-wife Shanna Moakler, mother to his son Landon and daughter Alabama, has remained at his bedside since the crash.
