Surfer dies from brain eating amoeba after visiting Waco, Texas, resort

The BSR Surf Resort voluntarily closed down its wave pool after a surfer infected with Naegleria fowleri died since visiting the park. CDC is working to determine the source of the amoeba

Stabile had previously been surfing in the pool - but it is unknown at this time whether he contracted Naegleria Fowleri from the water in the Waco facility.

Fabrizio Stabile, 29, died September 21, according to his obituary.

KTBS reported that tests by the Louisiana Department and of Health and Hospitals at the Sligo Water System were positive for Naegleria fowleri.

A 29-year-old surfer died from what is commonly known as a "brain-eating amoeba" after visiting a resort in Waco, Texas.

The CDC states that the brain-eating amoeba is found in warm freshwater, such as lakes, rivers and hot springs. It can cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM).

Naegleria fowleri infections are rare.

Claire uses powerful language in the speech, and as she has through the first five seasons, she remains a force in the season. The details of the Shepherd siblings' new dealings with the new president are, understandably, being kept under wraps.

Doctors first thought he was suffering from meningitis, but tests revealed he had Naegleria fowleri the day before his death, when it was too late to treat the infection.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is now investigating the case and BSR has voluntarily ceased operation until conclusive results are available.

The Baylor Wakeboarding club team is scheduled to host a tournament next weekend at the surf resort.

The owner of the resort, Stuart E. Parsons Jr., said he will continue to comply with requests related to the investigation of Stabile's death, who died in New Jersey earlier this month after falling ill with Naegleria fowleri. The fatality rate, however, is more than 97%, with just four people surviving of the 143 reported infections in the United States between 1962 and 2017.

He said the surf resort, which operates an artificial man-made wave, is in compliance with the CDC's "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".
