Sean Malone, known for his roles in “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Fighter,” has died due to a drowning accident, the Boston Fire Department confirms. He was 54.
Malone had been in a coma since July 20, after firefighters raced to rescue the actor, who had swam out too far at a South Boston beach and had proceeded to alarm an off-duty firefighter, Chris Flaherty.
By the time Flaherty got to Malone, he was already under the water. The firefighter brought Malone to the shore before the actor was taken to a nearby hospital.
