Antarctic workers 'stable' after rescue

"A German heart-attack patient and Russian man were in stable condition on Wednesday after a South African air ambulance team flew to Antarctica to rescue them, a Cape Town hospital said. The German patient was picked up after suffering a heart-attack before the team made a detour to rescue a Russian man who had broken his ankle, the Netcare Christiaan Barnard hospital said in a statement. The hospital provides medical care for a co-operative of 11 countries which organise missions in the part of Antarctica known as Dronning Maud Land" - The Star
