ANTARCTICA (WKOW) -- A mission to rescue a Russian ship stranded near Antarctica has run into trouble itself.
A Chinese ice-breaker was sent to rescue a research vessel that has been trapped in a frozen sea for the past four days. It was the first of three ice-breaking rescue ships, but became stuck itself on the way.
Crews on the stranded research ship, the MV Akademik Shokalskiy, have made contact to let everyone know they're alright.
