Waco Wavepool Closed While CDC Tests for “Brain Eating Amoeba”

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is testing BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort, in Central Texas, for Naegleria fowleri, a rare but highly deadly ameba colloquially known as a "brain-eating amoeba".

Fabrizio Stabile, 29, from New Jersey, had recently visited the wave pool of a surf resort in Texas.

Stabile, an avid outdoorsman, came down with a sudden severe headache while mowing his lawn September 16, according to a GoFundMe page.

The Naegleria fowleri amoeba is a free-living amoeba found in warm freshwater ponds, lakes and rivers, which feeds on bacteria but can cause a lethal infection in humans.

Sturridge's Stunning Goal Leaves Rüdiger Lost For Words
That attempt was in Sturridge's mind moments after he came on as a substitute in the Premier League rematch at Stamford Bridge with the Reds a goal down.

"'Fab, ' as family and friends would call him, was an avid outdoorsman".

The surf park voluntarily closed on Friday pending a CDC investigation, reported local media, and is complying with local health departments. Later symptoms include stiff neck, confusion, lack of attention, hallucinations, loss of balance and seizures.

Doctors first thought he was suffering from meningitis, but tests revealed he had Naegleria fowleri the day before his death, when it was too late to treat the infection.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is now investigating the case and BSR has voluntarily ceased operation until conclusive results are available.

EPL: Guardiola insists he is not afraid of Liverpool
City were not expecting him to be available until late November, but his return could well come before this month's global break. Star playmaker Ilkay Gundogan was the star of the show during Man City's win over Cardiff City last weekend.

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

According to the CDC's website, symptoms usually start one to nine days after swimming, and those infected typically die one to 18 days after the symptoms begin to show.

A CDC spokesperson said test results should come back sometime this week. He loved snowboarding, surfing, and anything to do with friends and family.

'We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri'. "Overall, he had a keen love for fishing".
