"Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time", BSR Cable Park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr told the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Fabrizio Stabile came down with a "severe headache" while mowing his lawn in Ventnor, NJ., on September 16.

He tested positive for Naegleria fowleri, a brain-eating amoeba that usually occurs in warm fresh water.

The surfer who passed away was Fabrizio "Fab" Stabile from New Jersey.

Stabile was immediately rushed to the hospital in Pleasantville, New Jersey, where doctors first believed his brain swelling and fever symptoms were caused by bacterial meningitis.

The response to the video - which was widely shared in a tweet by The Sun's royal correspondent, Emily Andrews - has been varied. The trailer of the documentary shows Meghan Markle looking at her white wedding dress and saying "fifty-three countries".

The surf park voluntarily closed on Friday pending a CDC investigation, reported local media, and is complying with local health departments. Later symptoms can include stiff neck, confusion, lack of attention to people and surroundings, loss of balance, seizures and hallucinations.

Officials with the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention are testing the Waco surf resort's water for Naegleria fowleri, KBTX reported. Death usually occurs within two weeks.

"Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time", owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. told the Waco Tribune.

Once symptoms begin, the disease progresses rapidly and typically causes death in five days.

The disease, according to the CDC, is nearly always fatal, with only four people out of 143 cases have survived the infection. Preliminary testing results should be ready later next week. "He loved snowboarding, surfing, and anything to do with friends and family", his obituary reads.

He said the surf resort, which operates an artificial man-made wave, is in compliance with the CDC's "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri". "Overall, he had a keen love for fishing".
