AN Irish expat has died following a car crash in Estepona early this morning, according to reports.

HERO: Sean McShey

The driver is believed to be Sean McShea, 34, who was declared dead by emergency services after they received reports of a crash at the entrance to Estepona port at 5am.

Reports state that McShea was the driver of the car, and that nobody else was injured.

The former boxer was featured in the Olive Press in March this year after he risked his life to save dozens of people sleeping inside a burning building.

Dubliner McShea was walking home at 2am when he spotted the out-of-control blaze in a block of flats in Duquesa Port.

Without a moment’s hesitation, McShea, a personal trainer who moved to Duquesa eight years ago, was inside the building tackling the blaze with an extinguisher he had found.

And thanks to his quick-thinking, he almost certainly saved lives, claim firemen.
