Surviving the weekend plane crash and mourning the death of his assistant Chris Baker and bodyguard Charles Still, Travis Barker is staying strong and "trying to stay upbeat," his friend Bill Nosal has testified. "If you make it out of a crash of that magnitude, somebody's looking out for you," Bill told The Associated Press Tuesday, September 23.

It is reported that Travis has been undergoing multiple surgeries following the tragic incident that left him and DJ AM badly burned. His ex-wife Shanna Moakler is staying with him since the first hours she got the bad news.

Shanna, as reported by People, has vowed not to leave Travis' side. A source close to her told the magazine, "She's been at his bedside ever since she got there. She loves him and she's not going to leave him" adding that "It has all been very intense. [Shanna] is very emotional but also very strong." Travis and Shanna's children, Landon Asher and Alabama Luella, currently are staying with their grandparents in California while their mother stays at Doctors Hospital to be with their father.

In between times, new details have emerged on how Travis and AM survived the plane crash. Lieut. Josh Shumpert of the South Congaree Police Department told People, both music stars told him that "they slid down the wing on the right side of the plane." Lieut. Josh furthermore stated, "They said they were on fire. They were pacing and in shock."

Investigation is still undergoing to determine on what led to the crash. Early assumption suggests blown tire might be a possible cause. Friends and family, in the meantime, remain gathered while condolences and get-well messages have been outpouring.

Wow, I love travis and all, but you people cant really keep saying "God" is with you...if "God" saved him and Adam...then why did the other 4 die? The only reason they survived was sliding down a BURNING WING OF A PLANE!! Doesnt sound like the hand of the great lord to me. Good luck travis, get Blink 182 back together, but please people, cut the fairy tale bullshit
