Texas Resort Closes After Man Dies from Brain-eating Bacteria

Fabrizio Stabile 29 died on Sep. 21 after getting infected by the Naegleria fowleri virus

Stabile died at the Atlantic City Medical Center in New Jersey on September 21, days after returning home from Texas, NJ.com reported.

The individual who died has been identified as 29 year-old Fabrizio Stabile of Ventnor.

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

Doctors at the Atlantic City Medical Center were unable to save Stabile, who died September 21.

The CDC says that it isn't possible to contract Naegleria fowleri by drinking contaminated water.

Nafta: US and Canada reach new trade deal
The new deal will replace the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement that was signed into law by then-President Clinton. The new deal avoids the collapse of the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA, which was rolled out in 1994.

The amoeba, also known as Naegleria fowleri, is "incredibly rare", but is naturally occurring in warm, fresh and sometimes stagnant water.

People usually get it when contaminated water gets in their nose and travels to the brain.

Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. offered his honest condolences to Stabile's family and says the park will continue to comply with the ongoing investigation.

Symptoms typically show from one to nine days after the amoeba is contracted and people usually die within about two weeks, according to the CDC. "The worst-case scenario was unfolding in front of our eyes as we learned that this infection results in a 98 percent fatality rate".

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. The organizations statistics indicate that since 1962 there have been 143 confirmed cases, of which only four people survived.

United States restricts visas to unmarried gay diplomats' partners
The change poses a problem for some same-sex couples who are not legally allowed to marry in their home country. Currently, only 26 countries have legalized same-sex marriages, the Pew Research Center noted .

According to the Associated Press, Fabrizio Stabile had visited BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort soon before his death.

'We are in compliance with the CDC guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri'.

According to the CDC, Naegleria fowleri infections are rare, with just 34 reported between 2008 and 2017.

The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater, such as lakes, hot springs, untreated well water, and rivers. Swallowing water contaminated by the amoeba can not cause the infection.

The BSR pool has voluntarily closed its facilities so that a small CDC team can collect samples for testing.

Tropical Storm Rosa nears Mexico’s Baja California coast
In other ways they can be bad because we're going to get a lot of water and we could have the risk of flooding or flash flooding". Rosa is expected to make landfall Monday as a tropical storm then continue moving northeast, soaking the southwestern US.

A GoFundMe page has been created by Stabile's family and friends to help bring awareness to the rare but preventable infection.
