The BSR Surf Resort in Waco, Texas has temporarily shut its doors after a surfer from New Jersey died as a result of complications from Naegleria fowleri, which is often referred to as a "brain-eating amoeba".

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

Fabrizio Stabile's family says the 29-year-old complained of a severe headache on September 16, and by the following day he was incoherent and unable to get out of bed. Symptoms of the disease typically begin one to nine days after the amoeba has entered the body, with people dying one to 18 days after symptoms begin.

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

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

However, even though Smith got them there, he could never find a way to win a game in the postseason. Linebacker Von Miller got a close-up view of Mahomes in the 2017 regular-season finale in Denver .

BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E Parsons Jr. said: 'Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time.

"The CDC collected water samples and are now investigating to find the source", Kelly Craine, a spokeswoman for Waco-McLennan County Public Health District, told CBS.

The infection has a 97 percent fatality rate, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

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

Known as "Fab", Stabile was born in Bloomsberg, Pennsylvania, and loved spending time outdoors, according to his obituary in the Press of Atlantic City.

CDC has already collected water samples and hopes to deliver conclusions by the end of the week.

The park is voluntarily closed until the test results come back.

Friend and family members have created a new nonprofit to raise awareness of the amoeba, called "The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness".

The infection can not be passed from person to person and typically occurs during the summer months of July, August and September. "Overall he had a keen love for fishing", the post said.
