Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, are expected to make a full recovery after a Learjet crash Friday night in South Carolina that killed four people and critically injured the two men.

The men suffered second- and third-degree burns, but had no other serious injuries from the crash. They were listed in critical but stable condition and “are not getting any worse,” according to officials at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, GA.

“[Medical director] Dr. Mullins also stated this morning that he expects a full recovery for these two patients,” said Beth Frits, spokeswoman for the Still Burn Center. “We’ve got walking miracles when you look at the plane crash.”

Family members for Barker and Goldstein released a shared statement on Sunday:

“The families wish to thank fans all over the world for their prayers and concern. Deepest sympathy is expressed to the loved ones who perished in the crash. As the two recuperate and mourn this loss, privacy for them, their families and friends is requested at this time.”
