A trip through a corn maze in Massachusetts turned out to be a whole lot more than a family bargained for.

Boston area police got a frantic 911 call from inside the corn maze at Connors Farm in Danvers. A couple, along with their 5-year-old and newborn, decided to take what's usually a one-hour trip through the maze.

But then the sun went down, and they got lost. That's when the woman used her cellphone to ask for help.

Officers and police dogs found the family about 25 feet inside the maze. The family didn't realize they had almost made their way out

Everyone was just fine.

Farm owner Bob Connors offered the family free tickets to come back and try it again. Connors said they didn't answer, but their faces said not anytime soon.
