Travis Barker Thanks Doctors Who Saved His Life

Travis Barker is still so thankful to the doctors that helped save him after his plane crash back in 2008, he took time out of his tour to stop by the Atlanta, Georgia burn center.

Barker made a pit stop at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Atlanta on Wednesday and met with patients currently being treated there.

He said, "I'm here to say thank you to everyone who took care of me after the accident. I was sort of unconscious the last time I was here, and I felt like I owed them a big thank you."

He added, "Wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for them. Glad I was able to go by and say thank u. I'll never forget them or what they did for me."

Dr. Fred Mullins, who helped treat Barker's wounds, was excited to see the drummer again: "This was a great opportunity for our staff and our patients to see someone who is truly a success story. Travis was gracious with his time today, and his presence was a nice surprise and boost for everyone here."

Barker is now the only survivor from the crash. His good friend DJ AM made it out alive as well but he sadly passed away from a drug overdose in August.
