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 today.

Around midday Saturday, villagers were startled by an explosion and a fireball that many were convinced 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.

Residents complained of headaches and vomiting brought on by a "strange odor," local health department official Jorge Lopez told Peruvian radio RPP.

Seven policemen who went to check on the reports also became ill and had to be given oxygen before being hospitalized, Lopez said.

Rescue teams and experts were dispatched to the scene, where the meteorite left a 30-metre-wide and six-metre-deep crater, said local official Marco Limache.

"Boiling water started coming out of the crater and particles of rock and cinders were found nearby. Residents are very concerned," he said.

Smallville references!? Pff, you newschoolers.

How about...

Did the person who first touched it sit in their hut, growing moss on themselves until they blew their head off with a shotgun?

that has happened before in that part of the world. last time it was a Russian satalite with a nuclear reactor, the villagers used the radioactive contains as glow paint. it killed most of them.

No, war of the worlds was about aliens planting life on earth so they can eat us later. They put machines in the earth millions of years ago. Then they wait till we populate the world, then the machines wake up and take our blood.

For the record, I hate war of the worlds. It's a dated idea and should have never been made into a movie.
