AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Antarctica, a Russian fishing vessel is stuck. And it looks like help won't be able to get there for several days because it'll take crews that long to reach it. Officials tell us 32-people are stranded and they've been throwing cargo overboard to lighten the ship's load.

India – This is the shortest woman in the world.

At just under 25-inches tall, she's been given that title by the Guinness Book of World records on her 18th birthday. The small teen has big goals of becoming a "Bollywood" actress.

China – A chocolate wonderland is now open for business.

It's a theme park devoted to all things chocolate. Everything that is on display is edible. The exhibit is attracting visitors of all ages and all of them are chocolate lovers.

United States – Firefighters called to a California house not to pull Santa out of a chimney but a teenage boy. We were told by a gentleman who lives in the house that he was trying to avoid having missed curfew. The boy too embarrassed to tell his side of the story. He wasn't injured, just dirty.

Australia –Santa swimming with the sharks and other sea creatures. The Oceanworld Aquarium is one of the only places in the world that has had success breeding grey nurse sharks in captivity.
