Are you planning to visit a corn maze? If yes, then you should keep an important thing in your mind — solving maze leaving children inside is not worthy at all.
As per the recent media reports, one family failed to follow the advisory which later became troublesome and point of criticism for that family. Here we talking about the Crazy Corn Maze in the Salt Lake City where a 3-year-old boy was left behind in the maze on Monday night West Jordan, Utah.
More surprisingly, the mother had no idea that her son was missing until the very next morning. A guest found the boy crying and upset near the Crazy Corn Maze entrance at around 7:30 PM MT.
Kendall Schmidt, who runs the maze, told The Washington Post, “He was crying and upset and obviously scared.”
Schmidt said, “We couldn’t get him to give us his name.” Schmidt added, “He could say his brother’s name and his cat’s name, but not his own name.”
The staff members walked through the corn maze with a bullhorn in order to find the family members of the lost boy. Meanwhile, the boy watched a movie on an off-duty police officer in her patrol car. When the staff member failed to find boy’s parents inside the maze, they waited for someone to return in search of the lost boy.
Nobody return for the boy, the boy was kept by the Utah Division of Child and Family Services overnight.
The parents got to know that their son is missing when boy’s mother finally noticed that her son is not with them after she woke up on Tuesday morning. Joe Monson, the West Jordan police Sgt told The Salt Lake Tribune, “She realized she may have left him at the corn maze and called us.”
Monson told the Tribune, “This was a case of multiple families with multiple children living in the same home.”
