LIMA (AFP) - Villagers in southern Peru were struck by a mysterious illness after a meteorite made a fiery crash to Earth in their area, regional authorities said Monday.
Rescue teams and experts were dispatched to the scene, where the meteorite left a 100-foot-wide (30-meter-wide) and 20-foot-deep (six-meter-deep) crater, said local official Marco Limache.

I am guessing radiation poisoning.
It's crazy though... boiling water coming up out of the crater.
Residents complained of headaches and vomiting brought on by a "strange odor," local health department official Jorge Lopez told Peruvian radio RPP.

No chance of it being a Ship or weapon or one of those space jellyfish creatures that live in the upper atmosphere??? I am just weirded out that this isn't big news... it's on the American Yahoo page but not the Canadian one and thats the only place I have seen something on it.
Nothing on the Nasa site or any science sites???
Seems like a big impact, is it being covered up?
Just some thougts... I mean questions.
