Has anyone escaped from alcatraz?

2 men escape in 1958

“Aaron Burgett and Clyde Johnson were working on the garbage detail when they overpowered a guard. Both jumped into the water, trying to swim off the island. A police launch intercepted Johnson, but Burgett disappeared until his body washed up on San Francisco's shoreline, 2 weeks later”

2 men overpowered a guard and jumped into the water, trying to swim off the island. a police caught Johnson, and burgett disappeared. 2 weeks later his body washed up on San Francisco shoreline (2 men in 1958).

COMMENTS: I think thata this was not a very good escape attempt. because they did not plan the attempt very good. Because they were caught they should have planned the attempt better.
