The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is testing for the amoeba at a wave pool at the Waco resort that Stabile had visited last month.

Fabrizio Stabile came down with a "severe headache" while mowing his lawn in Ventnor, NJ., on September 16.

He tested positive for Naegleria fowleri, a brain-eating amoeba that usually occurs in warm fresh water. He also said he and his workers' "hearts and prayers" are with family and friends of Stabile and the New Jersey surf community.

Twenty-nine-year-old Fabrizio "Fab" Stabile passed away at the Atlantic City Medical Center on Friday, September 21 after a brief fight with the bug.

The CDC collected water samples from the park, and it will remain closed until the source of the contamination can be found. 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.

"Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time", the owner of BSR Cable Park, Stuart Parsons, told the Waco Tribune-Herald. The CDC notes that the disease usually causes death within about five days of the start of symptoms.

The disease, according to the CDC, is nearly always fatal, with only four people out of 143 cases have survived the infection.

The surf park where Stabile is suspected to have contracted the infection. Once it reaches the brain it causes primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), which is often fatal.

The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now testing the resort for the rare amoeba, and the park has since voluntarily closed its doors. Only four people out of 143 known infected individuals in the United States from 1962 to 2017 survived.

There have been no reports of other illnesses, and Naegleria fowleri infection does not spread from person to person.

His family is asking for donations to the Swim Above Amoeba Awareness Foundation in his memory.

She said the CDC would work with the local health department on recommendations for how the park can reduce potential exposures, the Tribune reported.
