New Yorkers are celebrating the news that former South African president Nelson Mandela is now back at home after a long hospital stay.
Mandela was discharged from the hospital on Sunday morning, though South African President Jacob Zuma says his condition remains critical.
Mandela's doctors say he can receive the same level of care at home.
Mandela is 95 years old, and for months now has been fighting a recurring lung infection that landed him in the hospital since early June.
Reports yesterday mistakenly suggested Mandela had already been sent home before today.
