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.

"Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time", BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr told the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Fabrizio "Fab" Stabile, 29, of Ventnor, N.J., died September 21 - five days after complaining of a severe, sudden headache.

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

Symptoms include headache, fever, nausea or vomiting and come on within one to nine days after infection, the CDC said.

She also urged the United Nations for an early adoption of the CCIT that was introduced by India to the world body in 1996. Sources here said even after the cancellation of the talks, India last week released 14 Pakistani fishermen.


It's unclear if the park remained closed Sunday morning and the CDC did not immediately respond to The Associated Press' call seeking information on whether others who visited could have Naegleria fowleri. Parsons added that his park follows all CDC "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".

He is believed to have contracted Naegleria fowleri during a visit to the BSR Cable Park in Waco, Texas, where he swam in the wave pool. Death usually occurs within two weeks. Later symptoms can include stiff neck, confusion, lack of attention to people and surroundings, loss of balance, seizures and hallucinations.

The infection can not be passed from person to person and typically occurs during the summer months of July, August and September. He loved snowboarding, surfing, and anything to do with friends and family. Preliminary testing results should be ready later next week.

Initial symptoms of PAM usually start within 1 to 7 days after infection.

BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. said the parks' "hearts and prayers" were with the "family, friends and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time". "Overall he had a keen love for fishing", the post said. "BSR Surf Resort operates a state of the art artificial man-made wave".
