4 Brazilian Filmmakers rescued by Chilean Navy

On Monday, April 9, 2012, 4 Brazilian filmmakers were rescued by the Chilean Navy after their ship became stuck in the ice in Antarctica.  Their boat became stuck in the ice and the 100 km per hour winds caused it to capsize on Saturday, April 7, 2012.  They were working on a documentary about navigation and Antarctica's landscape.  Chilean officials plan to monitor the area for oil leaks and attempt to refloat the ship in the Antarctic summer.
