BSR Cable Park voluntarily closed after the CDC required testing of its waters after learning that a New Jersey man, who recently died, had been a guest at the park.

Fabrizio "Fab" Stabile, 29, was mowing his lawn in Ventnor, New Jersey, last month when he was overcome with a powerful headache.

Eighteen-year-old Lauren Seitz of OH died in June 2016 after she contracted the brain-eating amoeba after rafting with a church group at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, N.C., the Charlotte Observer reported. An obituary in The Press of Atlantic City describes Stabile as an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing, surfing and snowboarding.

CDC crews collected water samples hoping to find the source of the contamination.

The infection triggered by the amoeba has only been diagnosed 143 times in the USA during the past 55 years and has a 98 percent fatality rate, the CDC said.

"BSR Surf Resort operates a state of the art artificial man-made wave", he said.

The CDC also reports that there have been 34 reported cases of the "brain-eating amoeba" since 2008, of which only four of those who were infected survived.

The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now testing the resort for the rare amoeba, and the park has since voluntarily closed its doors. As soon as it reaches the brain, it can cause Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis (or PAM for short), which is generally fatal.

The Colorado Rockies' Charlie Blackmon completed a cycle by hitting an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday. But it's hard to deny that the Rockies have real motivation to win while the Nats have something less than that.

In the wake of Stabile's death, his family has created The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness to educate others about the rare and preventable infection.

The initial symptoms may include headaches, fever, nausea, or vomiting and will start between one and nine days after the infection.

The owner of the BSR Surf Resort, Stuart Parsons said that "the BSR Surf Resort values the safety of our guests from Texas and all over the United States and we strive to provide the safest environment for our patrons to enjoy all of our facilities". Following the onset of symptoms, patients typically die from PAM within five days. Swallowing water contaminated by the amoeba can not cause the infection. The rare, devastating infection usually occurs in warm, fresh water, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
