Wave Pool Surfer Dies From Naegleria Fowleri

by The Editors on September 30, 2018

BSR Cable Park, the host of Stab High surf event on September 22, 2018, closed on Friday, September 28, 2018 after it was reported that a New Jersey man (Fabrizio Stabile) who had visited the park in early September died from a “brain-eating amoeba,” according to a story in the Waco Tribune.

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 of the death of Fabrizio “Fab” Stabile.

The wave pool will be closed pending the test results from the Centers for Disease Control for Naegleria fowleri, however, the rest of the resort will reportedly remain open. Our thoughts are with Stabile’s family.
