Family Lost in Corn Maze Calls 911

http://www.newsnet5.com/dpp/news/loc...t-of-corn-maze

DANVERS, Massachusetts - A trip through a corn maze turned into an adventure one family just couldn't handle.

The family had to call 911 for help finding their way out of the maze in Danvers, Massachusetts.

"We thought this would be fun, instead it's a nightmare," the mother explained on the 911 call. "I'm really scared. It's really dark, and we've got a three-week-old baby with us."

As funny as this appears, I've been lost in a corn maze, and felt like panicking...when you're short, those high corn walls make you kind of calustrophobic!

I just rolled my eyes when i saw this on TV this morning.

We do several huge corn mazes each fall (with 6 small children), and you WILL eventually find your way out, even if you have to cut through the corn. if you're in a panic.

My thinking, exactly... I mean, it's CORN not lead walls... Plow right through that stuff if you have to.

Way to go, Mom and Dad. Who takes a THREE WEEK-OLD BABY into a corn maze? Some of those mazes can take hours to find your way out of.

I hope they were offered a police escort back home. Lord knows they might've gotten lost otherwise.

At least they didn't frivolously call 911 because they didn't get their Big Mac.

I would have loved to have seen the canine officers face when he got the call!

Sounds like a fun maze. I enjoy the mazes. Just don't go to one when you have a tight timeline.

This is the funniest Halloween story ever!

And was the owner really named "Rich Potter"?

Love it!
