September 27, 2008|From the Associated Press

Celebrity disc jockey DJ AM has been released from a Georgia hospital after suffering severe burns in a fiery plane crash a week ago, a spokeswoman for the musician said Friday.

DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, and former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker were rushed to a burn hospital in Augusta, Ga., after their Learjet crashed on takeoff from an airport in Columbia, S.C.

Two pilots and two other passengers, all from the L.A. area, were killed in the crash just before midnight Sept. 19.

A hospital spokeswoman would not say when Barker was expected to be released.
