911 Calls From People Lost in World's Biggest Corn Maze

Some people daring enough to enter the largest corn maze in the world were getting so lost they had to call 911 for help, police said.

The Solano County Sheriff's Office released those 911 calls to ABC News, revealing how frantic visitors to Cool Patch Pumpkins in Dixon, California, became when they couldn't find the edge of the 60-acre maze.

"I don't know what to do anymore. We've been in here like four hours," one caller said

Another woman told the dispatcher she had been stuck with her two kids for hours.

Yet another caller worried that the maze would close and leave him stranded.

"We're stuck and they close at 10," he said in a 911 call. "We're very worried and we can't find a way out."

Deputy Daryl Snedeker, a spokesman for the Solano County Sheriff's Office, said such calls come every year, and people shouldn't be concerned.

"We have a good working relationship with the owner of the corn maze, so our dispatch finds him and he goes out and finds them," Snedeker said, noting that deputies never had to visit the maze this year to find someone.

The sheriff's office got four or five calls this year, he said. The maze was mowed over this week as the season ended, Cool Patch Pumpkins wrote on its Facebook page.

It's not uncommon for people to panic when they can't find their way out of a maze: A family called 911 when they got stuck in another corn maze in Massachusetts.

At Cool Patch Pumpkins, Snedeker suggests that visitors next year remember to grab a map.

In my many years of corn mazes, I have found that if you always stick to the right hand wall you will eventually get out (actually it's just a fact but I wanted to sound important.)

I've never been in any corn field or large bush/ maze.. but I'd imagine if all else fails, stop following the paved path and go through everything in a straight line.

It can be tricky once you get in deep...kind of an overwhelming feeling! The one near us has areas you can climb up on, to get a feel for which way you need to be going. It would be a great spot for a murder! LOL
