Fabrizio Stabile, from Ventnor, started experiencing a severe headache on September 16 and by the next day he could not move or speak, according to a GoFundMe page set up in his memory.

A 29-year-old Atlantic County surfer has died from a so-called "brain-eating amoeba".

Stabile, whose family said he was an avid outdoorsman who loved to surf, had been at the park on vacation.

Fabrizio Stabile, 29, died September 21, according to his obituary.

A person can not become infected by drinking water contaminated with N. fowleri, the CDC says.

Fabrizio Stabile tested positive for Naegleria fowleri, a rare but deadly amoeba that typically thrives in fresh warm water. People can become infected if water contaminated with the amoeba goes up their nose.

However, Stuart E. Parsons Jr., the owner of the surf resort, said that they will continue to comply with the investigations. The CDC notes that the disease usually causes death within about five days of the start of symptoms.

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

The wave generating pool is now shut while the U.S. authorities carry out tests.

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.

He tested for Naegleria fowleri, a rare and risky amoeba typically found in freshwaters such as lakes and rivers.

Only four people of the 143 infected with the amoeba in the United States between 1962 and 2017 have survived.

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

The BSR pool has voluntarily closed its facilities so that a small CDC team can collect samples for testing.
