xue LongThe Chinese ship that helped ferry 52 passengers from an ice-bound vessel indicated it may be in trouble in antarctic waters, an Australian agency said Friday.

The Australia Maritime Ship Authority said the Xue Long notified the agency it had concerns about its "ability to move through heavy ice in the area."  The Australian ship Aurora Australis, which is taking the 52 passengers removed from the Akademik Shokalskiy to the Australian state of Tasmania, has been placed on standby in open water as a precaution, the agency said in a release.

"The Xue Long has advised ... that it will attempt to maneuver through the ice when tidal conditions are most suitable during the early hours [Saturday]," the AMSA said.

The Australian agency, which coordinated the rescue of the 52 passengers, said Xue Long crew members weren't in any immediate danger.
