Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has been released from an Augusta, Ga., hospital after suffering severe burns in a fiery plane crash more than a week ago.

Hospital spokeswoman Beth Frits says Barker was released this morning (Sept. 29).

Barker and celebrity disc jockey DJ AM were the only survivors of the crash just before midnight Sept. 19 at the main airport in Columbia, S.C. Two pilots and two other passengers were killed.

DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, was released from the hospital last week. Doctors have said they expect both men to fully recover.

Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board have said a cockpit voice recorder revealed that crew members thought a tire blew out and tried to abort the takeoff.
