Anybody here about this? I wonder why these kinds of things always seem to happen in places like Peru, Chile or somewhere else in S. America, where there may be less chance for it to be covered up.

LIMA, Peru — A 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 .aches 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.
