(Undated) -- Icebreakers are on the way to rescue a passenger ship that's become stuck in the ice in Antarctica. There are about 50 scientists and tourists on board along with around 20 crew members. They became trapped in ice about 15-hundred miles south of Australia on Tuesday. The ship is getting hammered by blizzard conditions and whipping winds. Even so, the people on board are said to be in good spirits. The first icebreaker is expected to reach the ship tomorrow.
