The actor died on Wednesday night after being pulled from the water at a Boston beach on July 20th.

Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald reported that one firefighter and three teens rushed to the scene on seeing him go under. After the firefighter and two of the teens performed CPR, Malone was taken to hospital in critical condition.

MacDonald confirmed that the injuries Sean Malone sustained were due to being unconscious and not breathing under water.

After being in a coma for nine days, the Boston Police Department confirmed Malone's passing on Wednesday with this tweet:

Malone most notable roles were playing Skinny Ray Likanski in 2007's Gone Baby Gone, Wolfie in 2010's The Fighter, and recently appeared in 2014’s The Forger.
