Federal Heights, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a 48-year-old man died at the Water World theme park in the north Denver suburb of Federal Heights, apparently a drowning victim.
The Adams County Coroner identified the man as Mikhail Valov of Arvada.
Water World Spokeswoman Joann Gomez says a life guard spotted Valov motionless in a wave pool on Tuesday. She says the guard pulled him from the pool and a paramedic tried to revive him.
Gomez says the Coroner's Office told Water World that preliminary autopsy results indicate the man drowned. The Coroner's Office hasn't released its findings.
Gomez says there had never been a drowning in the park's 30-year history. She says the park is conducting its own investigation.
