NJ Surfer Dies From Rare, "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

A surfer in the United States died of the extremely rare "brain-eating amoeba" just days after visiting a surf park.


Fabrizio Stabile, of Ventor, reportedly contracted the amoeba from a wave pool at a surf resort in central Texas.

Stabile returned to New Jersey and began suffering from a headache on September 16, according to the family's GoFundMe page. He died at a hospital in Atlantic City on September 21.

The defense giant beats out Lockheed Martin and Leonardo in the contest to build a replacement for USAF's aging T-38. Lockheed Martin offered to build a modified T-50 training jet, which was developed with Korea Aerospace Industries.

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

CDC crews collected water samples, trying to find the source of the contamination. We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri'.

But the infection is very rare, and according to the CDC, there have been about 35 cases reported in the U.S.in the last decade. The disease causes "primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), which destroys brain tissue and causes swelling and death", according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Infection typically occurs when people go swimming or diving in warm freshwater places, like lakes and rivers.

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

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. Multiple test results for other bacteria and viruses had been negative or inconclusive.
