The 29-year-old man died in New Jersey in September after falling ill with Naegleria fowleri. Those infected usually die within about five days.

He was rushed to hospital after he was unable to speak coherently to his mother or get out of his bed several hours later.

Parsons said Stabile had been in the park's wave pool.

The surf resort has been closed pending the test results from the CDC, he said.

It remains unclear when exactly Stabile visited the park, but infection symptoms from the parasite typically flare up between one and nine days after contact.

A surf park in Waco has closed for testing after a New Jersey man died earlier this month from a rare brain infection caused by an amoeba.

Naegleria fowleri infections are rare. 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. Stabile had previously been surfing in the pool - but it is unknown at this time whether he contracted Naegleria Fowleri from the water in the Waco facility.

The announcement included a short clip of the Duchess talking to the artists and viewing the work - a large hanging textile piece. The royal pair will head to the other side of Sussex to take part in youth driven activities and see some sites.

The Centers for Disease Control announced Friday that it is testing the waters at BSR Cable Park Surf Resort, in Waco, Tx., amid fears Stabile contracted the illness there.

"BSR Surf Resort operates a state of the art artificial man-made wave", he said. "We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".

A CDC spokesperson said test results should come back sometime this week.

Stabile's family have launched a GoFundMe for the Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness, in hopes of educating more people about the infection.

According to the CDC, there have only been 143 diagnosed cases of the parasite in the 56 years since it was discovered.

The CDC also reports that there have been 34 reported cases of the "brain-eating amoeba" since 2008, of which only four of those who were infected survived.

Infections can happen when contaminated water enters the body through the nose.
