Malone was to Boston Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.
Sean Malone is in critical condition after almost drowning at a beach in South Boston. Flaherty hopped on their boat and they went looking for Malone.
The 54-year-old actor was pulled from the water by an off duty firefighter and three local teens after being found floating face down in the ocean off the M Street Beach. Thankfully, a Boston firefighter, Chris Flaherty, was working out nearby and happened to see Malone in trouble. Sean Malone’s career film credits include numerous in small roles in a half-dozen films, including 2014’s “The Forger” and 2010’s “The Fighter”.
The young men named locally as Joey Binda and Elliott Chauvet, both 17, and John Feeney, 18, pulled him onto the boat and helped Flaherty perform CPR as they returned to shore.
As the teens raced back to the shore, they were met by two of Flaherty’s firefighter buddies in their own boat, who gave Malone CPR until he could be taken to the hospital.
“I’m really glad that nobody panicked”. Chris was able to flag down three teenagers on a powerboat to help him find Sean. “It brought me and my friends a lot closer.” said Binda. “All of the members picked up the board and pumped his heart”. Ironically Sean Malone’s brother was one of the Boston fire chiefs who were on the scene helping with the rescue. He’s also appeared in Dish’s “Hopper” commercials.
State Police do not know the circumstances that caused the man to struggle, but Guarino said they do not believe there was any foul play and do not intend to investigate the incident further.
