Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reportedly testing BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort for Naegleria fowleri. BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. says it will also continue to comply with requests related to the investigation of Fabrizio Stabile's death. He said the surf resort is in compliance with the CDC's "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri". Water system officials found out about the test results Friday.

Stabile's family have launched a GoFundMe for the Fabrizio Stabile Foundation for Naegleria Fowleri Awareness, in hopes of educating more people about the infection.

It's a type of amoeba that can be fatal if it enters a person's brain.

Of the few cases reported, only five people in North America are known to have survived.
