Meteorite Crash Causes 'Mystery Illness' in Peru

A crater 65 feet wide and 22 feet deepA village in southern Peru has been struck by a mysterious illness after a meteorite crashed to the earth around midday Saturday, an official with the local health department said.

Villagers heard an explosion and saw a fireball that many thought was an airplane crashing near their remote village, located in the high Andes department of Puno in the Desaguadero region, near the border with Bolivia, according to a report from AFP.

Residents later complained of headaches and vomiting brought on by a "strange odor," according to health department official Jorge Lopez.

Police responding to the scene also became ill and had to be given oxygen before being hospitalized, Lopez said.
