The June 11, 1962 Alcatraz escape was an attempt by convicted bank robbers
Clarence Anglin, John Anglin and Frank Morris to escape Alcatraz Island, one
of the country’s most famous prisons. They burrowed out of their cells with
spoons, climbed a ventilation shaft onto the roof and then climbed down
and left the island on a makeshift raft made of raincoats.Their escape was
not realized until the next morning. Despite an extensive search, the men
were never heard from again and their fates remain unknown to this day.
