Frabrizio Stabile, of Ventor, New Jersey, died on September 21, days after visiting BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort in Waco, Texas.

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

An obituary for Stabile describes him as an "avid outdoorsman" who "loved snowboarding, surfing, and anything to do with friends and family".

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is testing BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort, in Central Texas, for Naegleria fowleri, a rare but highly deadly ameba colloquially known as a "brain-eating amoeba".

"A small CDC team collected samples for Naegleria Fowleri testing and will be working with the health department on recommendations to provide the facility on how to reduce potential exposures", reported CDC spokesperson Candice Burns Hoffmann in the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Fabrizio Stabile, 29 died just one day after he was diagnosed with Naegleria fowleri, according to a GoFundMe page created by his family.

The Russian-Turkish deal averted a large-scale assault by Russian-backed Syrian forces on the province, where three million people live.

But the infection is very rare, and according to the CDC, there have been about 35 cases reported in the U.S.in the last decade.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reportedly testing BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort for Naegleria fowleri.

Infection typically occurs when people go swimming or diving in warm freshwater places, like lakes and rivers. It most commonly enters the body through the nose, where it travels to the brain causing primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM).

The surf resort has closed pending the test results from the CDC, he said.

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