Miner to return underground

9:23 am on 17 October 2010

One of the miners trapped underground for 69 days in Chile says he will return to the mines.

The ABC reports all but two of the miners are now home again, where they have been greeted by cheering crowds.

Omar Regadas was the 17th miner to climb out of the Phoenix escape capsule on Wednesday.

He says he will go back underground, but will demand better safety measures.
