The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that they have found evidence of Naegleria fowleri at the BSR Cable Park, in Waco, Texas.

The US health authority, in collaboration with the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District (WMCPHD) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), confirmed that the free-living amoeba that killed Fabrizio Stabile was detected at the water sports facility.

However, CDC notes that the rare single-celled organism that causes devastating brain infections was not found at BSR’s Surf Resort, Lazy River, or Royal Flush.
