Travis Barker survived a plane crash
This is definitely not a small step for Travis, especially considering that only he, along with another person, survived the plane crash. The accident happened on September 19, 2008.
Travis flew a private jet from South Carolina to Los Angeles after the performance, accompanied by his friend, his assistant and his bodyguard.
The accident happened during takeoff when there were problems with one of the wheels of the plane. Due to this, the pilot lost control and the plane went off the runway, eventually hitting the side of the road.
A fire broke out immediately after the collision, and Travis and his friend Adam Goldstein were the only ones who managed to escape from the emergency exit. However, because both were covered in fuel, they suffered severe burns.
Travis Barker had burns on 65% of his body and spent three months in hospital. During this period, 26 operations were performed on him.
Earlier, in an interview with Men’s Health, the drummer said that one day he will be encouraged to get on a plane again and Kourtney seems to have played a big role in overcoming his fear.
“I have to get on a plane again. I want to make choices and overcome fear. If I fly again and the angels help and take care of me, I want to come home and tell everyone, ‘I just got back by plane. And everything was great. ‘ It would be the perfect day.”
