US icebreaker heads to Antarctic to help stuck ships
Sydney (AFP) - A US icebreaker was dispatched Sunday to assist an icebound Russian research ship and Chinese vessel trapped during a rescue bid in Antarctica, as the leader of a group airlifted to safety rejected criticism of their expedition.

The US Coast Guard's Polar Star accepted an Australian request to go to the aid of the marooned Russian ship Akademik Shokalskiy which has been beset by ice since December 24.

It will also aid the Chinese icebreaker Xue Long which was involved in a dramatic helicopter rescue of the Shokalskiy's 52 passengers on Thursday

USCGC POLAR STAR is in dry dock maintenance more than it's underway. Hope she can get it done and make it out with everyone alive. Constructed during a time when the lowest of three bids nearly always won the competition over common sense and a well written statement of work for the contract.
