Passenger & Crew Rescued Off Ship In Antarctic

One hundred fifty four passengers and crew were rescued from a Canadian cruise ship that began taking on water today in the Antarctic.

A Norwegian cruise ship in the area responded to a distress call from the Canadian vessel Explorer. It had hit ice which left a fist sized hole in its hull.

The captain if the Norwegian ship says no one was injured, though some of those rescued were wet. A spokeswoman for the Canadian company that owns Explorer says the ship is listing and in danger of sinking.
