Waco Wavepool Closed While CDC Tests for "Brain Eating Amoeba"

Waco Wavepool Closed While CDC Tests for

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".

In the wake of Stabile's death, his family has created The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness to educate others about the rare and preventable infection.

The CDC has already collected water samples and is seeking to have results by the end of the week.

BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. said BSR Surf Resort values its guests' safety and will continue to comply with requests from the CDC and local health department in the investigation. The federal agency says only four of the 143 people known to have been infected in the US between 1962 and 2017 have survived.

Finally, on September 20, "Fabrizio's cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tested positive for the amoeba, Naegleria fowleri, which caused a rare infection that has only been diagnosed 143 times in the United States in the last 55 years".

In one clip, West said, "I wanna cry right now, black man in America, supposed to keep what you're feelin' inside right now ..." Chris Evans has some choice words for Kanye West after the rapper posted a downright weird tweet on Sunday morning.

He was rushed to hospital after he was unable to speak coherently to his mother or get out of his bed several hours later. If water containing the amoeba goes up the nose, it can cause an infection that is fatal 97 percent of the time.

Fabrizio Stabile, 29, died Friday from Naegleria fowleri, a bacteria-eating amoeba commonly found in warm freshwater and soil and that's only affected 34 people over the past decade.

Stabile was an avid outdoorsman who loved snowboarding, surfing, and anything to do with friends and family, according to an obituary published by The Press of Atlantic City. 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.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is now investigating the case and BSR has voluntarily ceased operation until conclusive results are available. Parsons added that his park follows all CDC "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".
