Texas Pool Closes After 'Brain- Eating Amoeba' Kills Visitor

A "brain-eating amoeba" infection is the suspected cause of death for a 29-year-old New Jersey man who died after visiting a Texas water park, according to his family.

Parsons said Stabile had been in the park's wave pool.

Once he returned home to New Jersey, Stabile complained of a severe headache on September 16, according to a GoFundMe campaign set up to spread awareness about N. fowleri. An obituary in The Press of Atlantic City describes Stabile as an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing, surfing and snowboarding.

Officials with the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention are testing the Waco surf resort's water for Naegleria fowleri.

A surf resort in Waco, Texas, has closed temporarily a week after a surfer contracted Naegleria fowleri, known as brain-eating amoeba.

Kelly Craine, Waco-McLennan County Public Health District spokesperson said, "The CDC collected water samples and are now investigating to find the source". We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri'.

The CDC says people are typically infected when they go diving or swimming in warm freshwater places.

The infection, which can cause a deadly infection called primary amoebic meningoencephalitis, usually occurs when contaminated water enters a person's nose, the CDC said.

It's unclear how Stabile contracted the brain-eating amoeba, but the BSR Surf Resort shut down Friday while the CDC conducts an investigation, Kelly Craine, Waco-McLennan County Public Health District spokesperson, told the Waco Tribune.

The infection has a 97 percent fatality rate, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). "BSR Surf Resort operates a state-of-the-art artificial man-made wave".
