Potential Naegleria fowleri exposure linked to Waco water park

Carol Daniels | 01 October, 2018, 21:25

The BSR Cable Park Surf Resort in Waco, Texas, voluntarily closed on Friday as the The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tests its waters.

Though it's unclear exactly how the man, 29-year-old Fabrizio Stabile, got the amoeba, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now investigating BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort in Waco, Texas, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported on September 28.

"We were hopeful until the end, but unfortunately, on Friday September 21st we learned the heart-breaking news that Fabrizio was pronounced brain dead as a result of this brain-eating amoeba".

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. Parsons added that his park follows all CDC "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri". Preliminary testing results should be ready later next week.

There have been no reports of other illnesses, and Naegleria fowleri infection does not spread from person to person.

Per WFAA, the BSR Surf Resort in Waco chose to close down its wave pool while the CDC tests the water for the microbe, whose scientific name is Naegleria fowleri. It most commonly enters the body through the nose, where it travels to the brain causing primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM).

The water park's owner has said he will comply with further requests relating to the investigation.

When his mother went to check on him in the early afternoon of Monday, Stabile could not get out of bed and could not speak coherently and he was rushed to hospital.

Only four people of the 143 infected with the amoeba in the United States between 1962 and 2017 have survived. Those infected usually die within about five days.

Three of those survivors were treated with drug therapy, but in Stabile's case it was too late to administer the medication.

The surfer who passed away was Fabrizio "Fab" Stabile from New Jersey.
