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.

Villagers complained of a "strange odor" and suffered effects such as headaches and vomiting. Even the emergency personel sent in to help became sick and had to be hospitalized.

-Are there other reports of such things happening on record?
-Is this common occurence for meteor strikes?
