Family lost in Mass. corn maze call 911 for help

Submitted By AP Wire Service

DANVERS, Mass. (AP), Oct 11 - Authorities say a family that got lost in a seven-acre corn maze in Danvers whipped out a cell phone and called police for help, apparently taking advantage of the department's motto that says ``We Want To Be Bothered.''

The maze at Connors Farm depicts a headless horseman with words ``Salem village'' and ``Danvers, Ma.'' The tourist attraction 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 did not realize that they had almost made their way out and were almost 25 feet from the street.

Farm owner Bob Connors tells the Boston Globe (http://bo.st/p7Xmzr) that they designed the maze so that people get lost in the long corn stalks.
