Waco wave pool bsr cable park Naegleria fowleri

According to The Waco Tribune Herald, Fabrizio "Fab" Stabile passed away from an infection linked to Naegleria Fowleri, which is an extremely rare and deadly organism that targets the brain.

BSR Cable Park voluntarily closed after the CDC required testing of its waters after learning that a New Jersey man, who recently died, had been a guest at the park.

A GoFundMe page - set up by Stabile's friends and family to raise awareness about PAM - writes that Stabile's symptoms first appeared on the afternoon of September 16, when he experienced an intense headache that forced him to take pain medication and lie down. 30 out of the 34 brain-eating amoeba cases reported between 2008 and 2017 were caused by recreational water. Stabile died on September 21 at the Atlantic City Medical Center.

Naegleria fowleri can not be contracted by swallowing contaminated water, according to the CDC. 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.

Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. offered his honest condolences to Stabile's family and says the park will continue to comply with the ongoing investigation. The initial symptoms may include headache, fever, nausea, or vomiting.

"The worst-case scenario was unfolding in front of our eyes as we learned that this infection results in a 98% fatality rate".

She said didn't know when Stabile was at the park. Once the amoeba enters the nose, it travels to the brain where it causes PAM (which destroys brain tissue) and is usually 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.

'We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri'. The disease progresses rapidly, and it can kill a human being in five days.

A person can be contaminated with the amoeba while swimming or diving.

"We created The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness to bring awareness to, and educate as many people as possible about, this rare and preventable infection".

The park remains closed pending the findings of the CDC.
