From The Boston Globe:
John Feeney, Joey Binda, and Elliott Chauvet helped save a man in the water in South Boston.
An off-duty firefighter and three teenagers from Milton came together on Monday to rescue a man who was drowning in the waters off of South Boston.
Sean Malone, 54, of South Boston, was swimming off the M Street Beach when he got into trouble. Sean is the brother of Deputy Fire Chief Scott Malone, according to Steve MacDonald, Boston Fire Department spokesman.
Coincidentally, firefighter Chris Flaherty of Boston was working out with other off-duty firefighters at the L Street Bathhouse. While watching Sean Malone swim out, Flaherty, an experienced diver, became concerned about how far out Malone was going.
