WACO, Texas ― A 29-year-old surfer from New Jersey has died from what is being referred to as a "brain-eating amoeba" after visiting a resort in Waco, Texas.
According to a GoFundMe page dedicated to him, Mr Stabile felt unwell while mowing his lawn on September 16. He went on to develop symptoms, including brain swelling and fever, and was pronounced brain dead on September 21.
Between 1962 and 2017, there have been 143 known infected individuals reported in the United States - 139 have died, and four have survived. However, such as in the case of Stabile, Naegleria fowleri can be contracted when contaminated water enters the body through the nose, either in a chlorinated swimming pool water or if one uses contaminated tap water to rinse their sinuses.
BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. said it will continue to comply with requests related to the investigation of Fabrizio Stabile's death.
The initial symptoms may include headaches, fever, nausea, or vomiting and will start between one and nine days after the infection.

She said she didn't know when Stabile was at the park.
BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. said the parks' "hearts and prayers" were with the "family, friends and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time".
Those interested in donating to The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation can do so here. Infections usually occur when it is hot for prolonged periods of time, which results in higher water temperatures and lower water levels.
In light of Stabile's death, officials at the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District are troubleshooting to find the source of the amoeba. Swallowing water contaminated by the amoeba can not cause the infection.
