A 29-year-old surfer from Atlantic County has died of what’s been described as a “brain-eating amoeba” after a visit to the wave pool of a Central Texas resort.

Fabrizio Stabile, of Ventnor, had been in the pool at BSR Cable Park in Waco prior to his death at Atlantic City Medical Center on Sept. 21, The Associated Press reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

Stabile tested positive for Naegleria fowleri — an amoeba that typically occurs in warm fresh water — the day before his death, according to a GoFundMe page started by loved ones to create a foundation in his memory.

When Stabile returned to New Jersey, the fundraiser’s organizer wrote, he reported a sudden severe headache while mowing the lawn.

It only got worse the next day, and when his mother went to check on him, he could not move or speak coherently, and he was rushed to an area hospital, where he was treated for symptoms of meningitis, according to the GoFundMe page.
