BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: And you might have heard something about this story from a seven-acre corn maze in Danvers, Mass . A couple with a three-week-old baby got turned around, apparently walking out through the stalks was not an option. Calling 911 was.

Unidentified 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. Thank you guys so much.

WILLIAMS: They were 25 feet from the road and didn't know it. They were rescued after calling 911. In their defense, the maze owners have all kinds of markers and safeguards for lost people to find their way. It looks like the couple apparently panicked when darkness approached. Now it's all over the world .
