Travis Barker Gets Emotional Recalling Deadly Plane Crash


The 'Blink-182' drummer gives account of his escape attempt in the deadly accident that left him seriously injured.
Travis Barker recalls the 2008 deadly plane crash that killed everyone onboard except for him and DJ AM. During an interview on "Good Morning America", the Blink-182 drummer gets emotional as he details his effort to save his life in the accident.

"The plane's on fire and my hands are on fire, so I unbuckle my seat belt and I jump right into the jet, which holds all the fuel," he remembered. "I basically ignite my whole body on fire. I'm so soaked in jet fuel, there's nothing I can do to put the fire out."

He recalled the painful experience, "I'm completely nude at this point ... I'm running, grabbing my testicles, my genitals, because, I don't know why, and then we realize, you know, we're out of the plane and ... the plane explodes."

Barker suffered burns over 60 percent of his body. "I stayed in burn centers for like the next four months," he said. "That feels like hell."
