There have been no confirmed escapes from Alcatraz. Fifty years ago, three men set out into the cold waters of the San Francisco Bay on a raft made from raincoats. Their names were Frank Morris, and John and Clarence Anglin. This was named one of the most daring prison escapes in history. It was strange because Alcatraz was named the unescapable prison. Nobody knows if they survived or not.
