Waco wave pool closes after surfer dies from 'brain-eating amoeba'

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

The stir began last month, when New Jersey's Fabrizio Stabile visited a Texas wave pool and tragically ingested the deadly amoeba.

Stabille's cerebrospinal fluid tested positive for the infection, but it was too late to administer the drug, according to the GoFundMe Page.

According to the CDC, Naegleria fowleri infections are rare, with just 34 reported between 2008 and 2017.

The amoeba, called Naegleria fowleri, is typically seen in fresh water. He soon went back to sleep after taking medicine for a headache but his condition quickly deteriorated. "Even so, this drug is not easily accessible", Stabile's friend wrote. It most commonly enters the body through the nose, where it travels to the brain causing primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM).

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now investigating the source of the "brain-eating amoeba" that killed the surfer. "We hope to have results by the end of the week", a spokeswoman for the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District told the broadcaster on September 30.

The CDC says Naegleria fowleri is often found in warm freshwater.

"Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time", Parsons said.

Naegleria fowleri can not be contracted by swallowing contaminated water, according to the CDC.

The investigation follows the tragic death of New Jersey surfer Fabrizio "Fab" Stabile, who passed away from an infection caused by the amoeba shortly after surfing BSR's wavepool.

Meanwhile, the BSR Surf Resort voluntarily closed its doors until the results of the analysis determine whether the surfer was infected, or not, in the artificial wave pool.

He subsequently died of the infection on September 16, according to a GoFundMe page set up to help create a foundation in his honor and to raise awareness of the rare but preventable infection. Swallowing water contaminated by the amoeba can not cause the infection.

A spokesperson for the CDC said preliminary testing results from the facility are expected to be returned this week.
