CHELYABINSK, Russia (Reuters) - Doctors here changed an earlier report that one of the approximately 1,000 injured as a result of Friday's meteorite over central Russia had died. The man, who Russian officials declined to name but said he was a 37-year-old factory worker, was originally pronounced dead late Friday, but medical workers later said they had erred. The victim was near a location where a fragment of the meteorite fell. Officials said he apparently suffered an as yet undiagnosed brain injury and was incapable of speech. He was agitated and bit a female nurse. She was treated for her injury and sent home to be with her family, officials said.
No further details about the man were released.
