Why It Was Perfect
Alcatraz was an island, so it was surrounded by cold and deep water. Even if prisoners escaped the walls, they’d still have to swim ashore, and that was dangerous. Though the prison closed in 1963, it’s remembered for being harsh. How did the prisoners escape?!

The stars of this story weren’t the only ones who attempted escape. However, the others weren’t successful. Throughout the years, 23 criminals tried, but they were captured and taken back to their cells. The guards weren’t happy with them, and they got more consequences.
