An evening stroll through a corn maze at Danvers’ Connors Farm took a confusing turn Monday, Oct. 10, for a family that became disoriented in the rows of corn and called 911 to ask for help.
A father and mother with two children used their cell phone to call Danvers Police at 6:32 p.m. reporting that they were lost in the corn maze. Danvers Officer Justin Ellenton responded to the call and entered the corn maze with Connor’s Farm manager Ritchie Potter to search for the family.
Within nine minutes of entering the maze, Officer Ellenton and Potter found the family. The family had almost found their way out, unbeknownst to them, they were only 25 feet from the street. Police were not releasing the name of the family as of press time.
Corn mazes are hard, especially the good ones. That’s kind of the point. Your group goes in and then uses its collective brain power to find a way out…wait, I think I just found the problem.
Speaking of finding a way out, I hope this makes these people feel just a little bit worse about themselves.
“We had a few people who got a bit lost last year but they found their way out,” Connor said. “There is no wire or fence around the maze, so if they really want or need to get out all they have to do is listen for the sound of traffic they can always make their way through the corn rows to the road.”
Connor said that the farm has a night security person on hand every night and they stay until everybody leaves.
“We make sure there are no cars left in the parking lot. We don’t want to leave anybody behind in the maze,” Connor said.
So if they had just calmed down and used their ears, they would have been fine.
Yes, I just said that. I’m sorry.
