Brain-eating amoeba kills surfer

The real Jen See thrilling at buoy news

The "heat-loving" amoeba is most commonly found in soil and warm fresh water, including lakes rivers and hot springs.

A New Jersey man has died after contracting a brain-eating parasite he was believed to have come into contact with at a wave pool in Texas, according to reports.

"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.

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 amoeba are similar to bacterial meningitis.

Naegleria fowleri infections are rare. He died the next day. "The worst-case scenario was unfolding in front of our eyes as we learned that this infection results in a 98 percent fatality rate".

Thomas, last year's PGA Championship victor , then birdied the 16th and 17th - the latter to clinch the match. All odds are via Sportsbook.ag and current as of Friday afternoon at 1:40 p.m.

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. Later symptoms include stiff neck, confusion, lack of attention, hallucinations, loss of balance and seizures.

The infection can not be passed from person to person and typically occurs during the summer months of July, August and September.

Stabile's obituary said that he passed away surrounded by his family on Friday, September 21 at the Atlantic City Medical Center.

He had a keen love for fishing, which led him to work for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Bass Pro Shops. "Fabrizio will be remembered as someone with a contagious smile, who could lift the spirits of anyone and everyone he talked to".

CDC spokesperson Candice Burns Hoffmann said that preliminary test results should be ready next week and will provide recommendations to BSR Surf Resort for reducing potential exposures in the future, as reported by the Waco Tribune-Herald.

"BSR Surf Resort operates a state of the art artificial man-made wave", he said.
