Naegleria Fowleri is especially unsafe, proving fatal 97 percent of the time according to the CDC.
The surf park voluntarily closed on Friday pending a CDC investigation, reported local media, and is complying with local health departments.
Naegleria fowleri is a microscopic amoeba which is a single-celled living organism.
The infection is extremely rare, but very deadly. The disease causes "primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), which destroys brain tissue and causes swelling and death", according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, ponds and canals. Only four people out of 143 known infected individuals in the United States from 1962 to 2017 survived. "Our hearts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the New Jersey surf community during this hard time", park owner Stuart E. Parsons Jr. said in a statement, per the AP. He said the surf resort is in compliance with the CDC's "guidelines and recommendations concerning Naegleria fowleri".
