Texas Surf Resort Temporarily Closes After Man 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

"We were hopeful until the end, but unfortunately, on Friday, Sept. 21, we learned the heartbreaking news that Fabrizio was pronounced brain dead as a result of this brain-eating amoeba", the GoFundMe page reads.

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

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 was rushed to hospital after he was unable to speak coherently to his mother or get out of his bed several hours later. He went on to develop symptoms, including brain swelling and fever, and was pronounced brain dead on September 21. He died the next day.

According to the CDC, Naegleria fowleri causes the onset of primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), a brain infection that leads to the destruction of brain tissue and be fatal.

CDC spokeswoman Brittany Behm said the agency knows of no other patients linked to the Texas facility who have symptoms of the infection, which can start out with a headache, fever and nausea, and worsen into a stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and seizures.

Stabile died two days later on September 21 from Naegleria fowleri.

Naegleria fowleri can be treated with a new drug called miltefosine but in Stabile's case, it was too late. Most infections occur from exposure to contaminated recreational water.

He worked at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Bass Pro Shops. "Overall he had a keen love for fishing", the post said.

He is survived by his parents, Rita and Vincenzo, and sister Angelica. He said the surf resort is in compliance with the CDC's "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".

It's unclear if the park remained closed Sunday morning.
