James Harness, Discovery Channel's Gold Rush, dies 57

Cause of death has not yet been released

The crew mechanic, he prides himself on being able to repair nearly anything. However, a car wreck has left him with metal pins in his ankle and a severe spinal injury which, due to lack of finances, he cannot afford to have surgically repaired. A Baltimore medical center donated a medical procedure to correct his back problem, which resulted in the need for yearly injections. During season 2 when operations were halted due to dirty water, Todd asked him to build a water filter. Instead he left the camp to spend a week with his girlfriend in a motel. At the end of the season the crew fired him, blaming him for missing their 100 ounce target.
