BROOKLYN - Concerned parents are asking officials to look into potholes at a Brooklyn playground.

They say the potholes at a Canarsie Pier playground pose a potential hazard for children. It's unclear if they were caused by damage from Superstorm Sandy, but it's evident that a child could easily fall inside the holes and hurt themselves.

Video taken by one parent shows the holes filled with trash and kids making a conscious effort to avoid tripping into them. The parent says he has called 311 and 911, and so far nothing has been done.
