Ship rescues 122 passengers from damaged Antarctic cruiser

All 122 people aboard a leaking Antarctic cruise ship have been rescued and taken to a Chilean naval base, military officials said Friday. The Panamanian-flagged Ushuaia - with 89 passengers and 33 Argentine crew members aboard - sent out an alarm when it began leaking fuel and taking on water after running aground Thursday. Chilean Army Capt. Allan Nettle said that all the passengers and crew members are in good condition at the Presidente Frei base, from where they will be flown to the South American mainland. Argentine naval Capt. Pedro Ojeda said the Ushuaia hit a rock passing through the Gerlache strait. The cruise ship was never in danger of sinking.
