Schip dagen gestrand op Antarctica

Een derde reddingspoging moet vandaag een einde maken aan de hachelijke situatie van de bemanning van de Akademik Sjakalskij. Het schip ligt sinds kerst vastgeklemd tussen het ijs van Antarctica. Chinese en Franse ijsbrekers konden het schip niet bereiken. Vandaag is een Australische ijsbreker aan de beurt.

The Russian-registered MV Akademik Shokalskiy became stuck in ice on 24 December with 48 passengers, mostly Australians, and around 20 crew on board. After rescue efforts by Chinese icebreaker Snow Dragon failed, the remaining rescue ship, Australia's Aurora Australis, is expected to reach the site, about 2,500 kilometres south of Hobart, Tasmania, late 29 December.

The Xue Long (Snow Dragon) Chinese icebreaker sits in the ice pack unable to get through to the MV Akademik Shokalskiy, in East Antarctica, December 28, 2013, some 100 nautical miles (185 km) east of French Antarctic station Dumont D'Urville and about 1,500 nautical miles (2,800 km) south of Hobart, Tasmania. The Snow Dragon was one of three icebreakers sent to free the MV Akademik Shokalskiy, which became stranded on Tuesday in ice driven by strong winds. Ice appeared to be cracking up on Sunday, raising hopes for a rescue as the Aurora Australis, a powerful Australian icebreaker, approached the stranded vessel. The trapped Russian ship, with 74 people on board, left New Zealand on November 28 on a privately funded expedition to commemorate the 100th anniversary of an Antarctic journey led by famed Australian explorer Douglas Mawson.
