"Mythbusters" Erik Gates Dies in 30 Foot Fall (Photo)

Erik Gates, one of the cast of the popular TV show "Mythbusters," died yesterday in a freak accident.  He was walking on a roof and apparently fell through a skylight, falling 30 feet to the floor.  He was taken to a hospital where he later died.  Gates was a rocket expert and appeared on "Mythbusters" numerous times, although he was apparently not a regular member of the cast.

That's Erik Gates in the top picture.  However, he is not one of the two main hosts of the program.  They are Jamie Hyneman (front row wearing a beret) and Adam Savage (front row wearing black frame glasses).  The people in the back row (from left to right) are Grant Imahara, Kari Byron and Tory Belleci.
