Children playing in an open manhole.
It's not something many Montrealers would think would be a problem in this city - but a Hochelaga Maisonneuve man says it is and wants his borough to do something about it.
Lasana Joseph tells CTV he spotted a group of kids playing in an open sewer over the weekend.
The sewer was covered over by public works employees late Monday afternoon but Joseph says this isn't the only open sewer he's seen in his neighborhood, adding it's an accident waiting to happen.
"I have seen this too many times, too many times, and I`ve seen worse. I`ve seen in the middle of the street, open and just a couple of pieces of wood, like an X basically, where anyone, I can fall through." he tells CTV News.
