Family lost in corn maze calls 911 for help
DANVERS, Mass. (AP) - October 12, 2011 (WPVI) -- Authorities in Massachusetts say a family that got lost in a seven-acre corn maze called 911 for help, apparently taking advantage of the police department's motto that says "We Want To Be Bothered."
The maze at Connors Farm in Danvers can take up to an hour to navigate.
A police officer entered the maze with a farm manager to search for the disoriented father, mother and two children. The family didn't realize they had almost made their way out and were just 25 feet from the street.
Farm owner Bob Connors tells the Boston Globe that they designed the maze so that people get lost in the long corn stalks.
