The escape from Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary was one of the most ballsy prison breaks in history. The island was said to be inescapable until Clarence Anglin, John Anglin and Frank Morris decided differently.
The three were serving time for more than a few crimes including bank robbery and car theft when they chose to breakout. On June 11, 1962, the trio cut holes in their cell walls, left behind papier-mâché dummies in their beds, and fled outside the building through the ventilation staff. Then they scaled the fence and fashioned a raft from raincoats and contact cement. It was around 10pm when they cast off into the cold waters of the San Francisco Bay.
