    A Chilean navy ship and another nearby cruise chip, the Atlantic Dream, are on their way to help the Ushuaia and rescue passengers.

    "The aim is to get the passengers off as soon as possible and this they're going to do with the Atlantic Dream, which will soon be arriving there," Martin said.

    Both vessels are expected to arrive on Friday morning.
