Boston — Authorities say an actor who had roles in “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Fighter” has died more than a week after he was pulled from the water at a Boston beach.

Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald says 54-year-old Sean Malone died Wednesday night at a hospital.

Malone was pulled from the waters on July 20 after a Boston firefighter and three Milton teens saw him go under. Flaherty and two of the men performed CPR, and he was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

MacDonald says Malone had injuries from being pulled unconscious and not breathing from the water.

Malone played Skinny Ray Likanski in 2007’s “Gone Baby Gone” and Wolfie in 2010’s “The Fighter.”
