A "brain-eating amoeba" infection is the suspected cause of death for a 29-year-old New Jersey man who died after visiting a Texas water park, according to his family.

A young surfer has died after contracting a deadly rare brain-eating amoeba in the U.S. Stabile had previously been surfing in the pool - but it is unknown at this time whether he contracted Naegleria Fowleri from the water in the Waco facility.

Stabile reportedly had days of severe headaches until he eventually couldn't move or speak properly.

Stabile was tested for numerous diseases and bacteria, but everything kept coming back as negative or inconclusive, according to the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Naegleria fowleri can not be contracted by swallowing contaminated water, according to the CDC.

BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. said BSR Surf Resort values its guests' safety and will continue to comply with requests from the CDC and local health department in the investigation.

The amoeba is most commonly found in areas of warm freshwater like lakes or hot springs.

The contaminated water enters swimmers and divers' bodies through the nose, and then travels to the brain where it causes primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). "We hope to have results by the end of the week".

"The CDC collected water samples and are now investigating to find the source", Kelly Craine, a spokeswoman for Waco-McLennan County Public Health District, told CBS.

Stabile's obituary said that he passed away surrounded by his family on Friday, September 21 at the Atlantic City Medical Center.

However, people will not be infected by Naegleria fowleri by drinking contaminated water.

The infection has a 97 percent fatality rate, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

'BSR Surf Resort operates a state of the art artificial man-made wave.

Friend and family members have created a new nonprofit to raise awareness of the amoeba, called "The Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness". Swallowing water contaminated by the amoeba can not cause the infection.
