Peruvian Invasion of the Body Snatchers

On Monday, villagers in southern Peru were struck by a mysterious illness after a meteorite crashed to the Earth in their area. Read the Yahoo Story here.

Rescue teams and experts hightailed it to the scene, where they found a crater measuring 100 foot x 20 foot long. There were also reports of boiling water and gas seeping out of the crater and particles of rock and cinders were found nearby. Residents also complained of headaches and vomiting brought on by a "strange odor" seeping from the debris.

Don't know about you, but it sounds reminiscent of The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verril - one of the stories in the film Creepshow where the main character (played by Stephen King) finds a meteor, touches it and - eventually - turns into a plant.

Let's just say I'm keeping my eye on this story.

Because if C.H.U.D.'s start coming out of the woodwork in Peru, it's time to run for the hills.
