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.

The Gateway National Recreation Area and the National Parks Service, who oversee the playground, have not yet returned News 12's request for comment.
