Rescue Near For Passenger Ship Trapped In Antarctic Ice
Friday, December 27, 2013
(Undated) -- Rescue is near for the more than 70 people aboard an expedition ship that's been trapped by sea ice in the Antarctic.
Those on the ship tell NBC's "Today" show they can see the Chinese icebreaker that expects to reach the stranded ship later today. The Chinese ship is moving slowly due to the thickness of the ice. A few hours later, a French icebreaker is expected to reach the trapped researchers and tourists. It'll be followed by an Australian ship.
