Rescue efforts for ship stranded off Antarctica
ANTARCTICA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Help has almost arrived for an expedition ship trapped in the frozen seas off Antarctica.
Three icebreaking vessels are en route to the ship, which has been stuck since Monday.
Witnesses on the ship say they can already see one of the ships, which should be there sometime Friday.
The leader of the stranded expedition says all 74 people on board are safe, despite having spent Christmas at a frozen standstill a hundred miles from civilization.
