On June 11, 1962, three men tunneled out of their cells, gained access to the cell-block roof, lowered themselves to the ground, and made their way to the shore of the Alcatraz Island. Clinging to an improvised raft they slipped out into the dark waters of the bay. They were never seen again.
But they did not die. Read this remarkable account of what happened to the escapees from Alcatraz.
