Escape From Alcatraz

A 9-year-old boy swam the cold, choppy waters between Alcatraz island and the San Francisco shoreline Monday, raising $30,000 in donations for Hurricane Katrina victims.

Johnny Wilson, a fourth grader from Hillsborough, called the swim in the 53-degree San Francisco Bay "tiring" but said he kept telling himself, "I'm almost there, I'm almost there."

Johnny finished the 1.4-mile swim from the infamous prison island in under two hours.

The prison closed in 1963 and never officially recorded a successful inmate escape. Now even a 9-year-old can escape kanasai!

Amazing ain't it? What was I doing when I was 9? Maybe still playing guli and watching smurf on tv. Tiu. Damn malu :P
