The Aurora Australis attempting rescue in the Antarctic

The video below is of the Aurora Australis attempting a rescue of the cruise ship (Akademik Shokalskiy) and Chinese ice breaker (Xue Long) stranded in a lovely Antarctic summer!

With floe ice a metre thick topped with snow, the Captain, Murray Doyle, decided that it was time to get out before the Australis too got trapped.

Good leadership decision!
