A Texas water park has been closed for testing after a past visitor succumbed to the so-called "brain-eating amoeba".

It's unclear if the park remained closed Sunday morning and the CDC did not immediately respond to The Associated Press' call seeking information on whether others who visited could have Naegleria fowleri.
The amoeba infects people when it enters the body through the nose, causing Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis. Once the amoeba enters the nose, it travels to the brain where it causes PAM (which destroys brain tissue) and is usually fatal. The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, ponds and canals.
You can not get infected from swallowing water contaminated with Naegleria.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reportedly testing BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort for Naegleria fowleri. We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri'. Water system officials found out about the test results Friday.
