Police Help Family Lost In Corn Maze


DANVERS, Mass., Oct. 12 (UPI) — Police in Massachusetts said an officer and a K9 unit were dispatched to assist a family after they became lost in a corn maze.

Danvers police said they received a call about 6:35 p.m. Monday from a family that got lost in the seven acre corn maze at Conners’ Farm and became worried when darkness began to fall, the Boston Globe reported Wednesday.

The officer and K9 were quickly able to locate the family and help them find their way out, police said.

Bob Conners, owner of the farm, said he and his workers “design the maze so that people get lost.”

“We don’t like to rush people out of the maze. We like to give people their money’s worth,” Connors said. “I’m sure they won’t be the last family who gets lost in there.”

Conners said farm staff stay on hand nightly until all visitors have found their way out of the maze.
