A Norwegian ship that was sent to rescue two Norwegian polarfarere, sits on the eighth day stuck in the ice. But possibly the ship can soon come free.
The past week the ship Lance in the whole, not done much other than sit stuck in the ice, writes the Norwegian VG.
the Newspaper writes, however, that there now is hope ahead for the rescue workers and the two polarfarere, who was rescued by Lance.
The two norwegians, Mike Horn and Borge Ousland, was rescued d. 8. december, after they were running out of food and fuel in a bitterly cold with temperatures down to minus 25 degrees.
The two had set out to cross the world's largest glaciers.
They would prove, that because of climate change now can sail places, which was previously not possible.
It is rising temperatures that now can be Lance and its crew to the rescue.
Right now it is only 13 degrees below zero, and it should be enough that the ship's captain will try to get free of the ice once again Saturday night.
Friday, three people were evacuated by helicopter from the ship, while another 18 man and a woman on board.
the Evacuation is due to ship soon is about to run out of food.
the Plan was actually that the two polarfarere should reach to Svalbard, from Alaska with the ski and the boat and picked up by the Mike Horn's ship, the 'Pangea'.
But the situation developed dramatically, and the ice was too uncertain, so the old Norwegian polarekspeditionsskib 'Lance' came the two men to the rescue.Updated Date: 21 December 2019, 19:00
