Actor Sean Malone Boston drowning

Sean Malone, who has appeared in the movies Gone, Baby, Gone and The Fighter, is in critical condition in a Boston hospital after nearly drowning on Monday.

The 54-year-old actor was pulled from the water by an off duty firefighter and three local teens being discovered floating face down in the water.

Malone was unconscious when rescuers reached him after he swam too far out.

Firefighter Chris Flaherty was working out with other firefighters on the beach when he noticed how far out Malone was swimming. He went out on a paddleboard towards him but couldn’t find him.

Flaherty flagged down three teen boys – Joey Binda and Elliott Chauvet, both 17, and John Feeney, 18 – who were in a speedboat and they searched and found Malone floating face-down in the water.
