Everest Robillard, chief of the Cal Expo Police Department, told the Sacramento Beethat police were called to Raging Waters in Sacramento at 3:30 p.m. Sunday to break up a fight between two families.

Robillard says when the fight was over, 35-year-old Christopher Neves of Modesto was found unconscious and without a heartbeat. Paramedics performed CPR and took Neves to a hospital, where he was in stable condition.

Robillard says the feud started over a beach towel then grew to insults and profanity, with one family upset that profanity was used in front of children. He says alcohol was involved.

Officials closed the waterpark and escorted everyone out.
