Craine said one person from out of state who visited the park has been infected by the amoeba, and the CDC is trying to find the source.

Once he returned home to New Jersey, Stabile complained of a severe headache on September 16, according to a GoFundMe campaign set up to spread awareness about N. fowleri.

It's unclear if the park remained closed Sunday morning.

Surfer Fabrizio Stabile has died from a severe brain infection caused by Naegleria fowleri, colloquially known as the "brain-eating amoeba", apparently after surfing at the innovative BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort in Waco, Texas.

A spokesperson for the CDC said preliminary testing results from the facility are expected to be returned this week.

The single-celled organism is commonly found in warm freshwater, such as lakes, rivers, and hot springs, as well as in soil.

The infection is extremely rare, but very deadly. Parsons added that his park follows all CDC "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".

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

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is now investigating the case and BSR has voluntarily ceased operation until conclusive results are available.

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

The infection can not be passed from person to person and typically occurs during the summer months of July, August and September.

A GoFundMe page has been set up as The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation, where more than US$22,000 of a $50,000 target has been raised so far.

Infections can happen when contaminated water enters the body through the nose. The organizations statistics indicate that since 1962 there have been 143 confirmed cases, of which only four people survived.

"By the time Fabrizio was diagnosed, it was too late to administer the drug that had previously been provided to three of the only five known survivors in North America", Stephanie wrote.
