New Jersey man dies after contracting brain-eating parasite

01 October 2018

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

Fabrizio Stabile came down with a "severe headache" while mowing his lawn in Ventnor, NJ., on September 16.

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.

You can not be infected with Naegleria fowleri by drinking contaminated water and the amoeba is not found in salt water.

The BSR Surf Resort in Waco, Texas has temporarily shut its doors after a surfer from New Jersey died as a result of complications from Naegleria fowleri, which is often referred to as a "brain-eating amoeba".

GOP senators demand probe of Feinstein’s office after Kavanaugh accusations
Senate leaders agreed to delay a final vote on Kavanaugh's nomination to allow for a one-week FBI investigation. Sen. "God helps us all as Republicans", Graham said to reporters.

A spokesperson for the CDC said preliminary testing results from the facility are expected to be returned this week. The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, ponds and canals.

Naegleria fowleri infections are rare.

Parsons said his resort's wave pool is in compliance with the CDC's "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".

The owner of the surf resort, Stuart E. Parsons Jr., said he will continue to comply with requests related to the investigation of Stabile's death.

Only four people out of 143 infected in the United States between 1962 and 2017 have survived, according to the CDC.

Moments later, a visibly troubled Flake changed course, huddled with Democratic colleague and friend Sen. However, he also said that the delay could eventually help both Republicans, and Kavanaugh himself.

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

Infections can happen when contaminated water enters the body through the nose. "BSR Surf Resort operates a state of the art artificial man-made wave".

Stabile's family have launched a GoFundMe for the Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness, in hopes of educating more people about the infection.

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