At least 10 freed Chilean miners will go home today

At least 10 rescued Chilean miners will be released Friday from the Copiapo Regional Hospital, officials said.

More men might be released, depending on how final checkups go, but none will require extensive medical treatment, they said.

Three of the miners arrived late Thursday to joyous homecomings following their release from the hospital, CNN Chile reported. Officials hope that all 33 will be home by Sunday.

CNN's sister network, CNN Chile, identified them as Juan Illanes, Edison Pena and Carlos Mamani. It aired video of several men and what appeared to be their families inside a red van departing the hospital grounds.
