• The following exchange occurred between the mother of a family who got lost in a supposedly creepy corn maze outside of Salem, MA and a 911 operator:

Woman: “Hi, I just called. I’m still stuck at Connors Farms. I don’t see anybody. I am really scared. It’s really dark and we’ve got a 3-week-old baby with us.”
Dispatcher: “Just relax. Calm down. Your husband is with you right?”
Woman: “Yes, but my baby?”
Dispatcher: “OK. I understand and the police officer is on the way.”
Woman: “We thought this would be fun. Instead it’s a nightmare. I don’t know what made us do this. It was daytime when we came in. And I never take my daughter out. This is the first time. Never again.”
