The Waco Tribune-Herald released a story about a case of brain-eating amoeba that claimed the life of someone after they have gone to the BSR Surf Resort.

N. fowleri is an amoeba found in warm fresh water, according to the CDC.

"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. The infection is also extremely deadly, with a fatality rate exceeding 97 percent, the CDC says.

She said didn't know when Stabile was at the park. Of the 143 cases reported, only four people survived.

Seoul says North Korea has 20-60 nuclear weapons
South and North Korea are reported to have started removing landmines from along their heavily defended border. Past rapprochement efforts were often stalled after a standoff over the North's nuclear ambitions intensified.

Symptoms generally include fever, severe headache, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, nausea, and vomiting, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The "heat-loving" amoeba causes PAM, or primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), a rare and almost always fatal disease of the central nervous system, according to the CDC.

Since the microscopic amoeba enters your body through your nose, experts advise people to avoid swimming underwater and diving in warm water bodies, especially during the late summer months.

The amoeba is rare, with 34 infections reported in the United States from 2008 to 2017.
