luke. >> when that door slammed shut behind you the first time, you really know that you're in maybe last prison because i never heard that sound before. >> what do you think draws the crowds? what sit about alcatraz? >> well, it's probably just the notoriety of the place. and we were supposed to be the worst people that ever lived. you know, here i am a nice old guy. >> but you're one of the guys who realized when he was in prison that this wasn't the way to go. >> i had what i called epiphany. all the things i realized i had done was by my own choice. so i had actually chosen to come to alcatraz. once i believed that, all the hate went away. i knew that i could get out and try to stay out so i got out when i was 30 years old. >> how old are you now? >> 88. >> former inmate bill baker took

a different path. for him alcatraz was a trade school. >> i learned how to counterfeit payroll checks. everybody just about that i know here that's what they lived for. to get out and rob banks and cash hot checks or whatever. here is my cell. >> this is yours? >> this is mine. >> six foot by nine foot. >> not even size of decent size rug. >> smaller than most people's bathrooms today. i can put my hands on both walls. >> at age 82, baker says lately he's been thinking about retiring from his career in the crime sector. >> last prison system i served i got out four and half years ago, just got married couple days ago. now i have a house, a cara wife and a dog. i got it honestly, legitimately
7:01 am
i'm proud of it. >> took you a long time. >> took me a long time. >> in that time returning to alcatraz has become a bit easier for some. >> it's not bad. you know, i'm getting used to being here. and i can leave when i want to. that's the main thing. >> osgood: coming up. just for kicks. my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment.
7:02 am
knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. wait... wait... perfect. at del monte, green beans are packed at the peak of freshness with just water and a dash of sea salt. nothing else. so they're all-natural and delicious.
