THE BRONX - A collapsed drain in the middle of a Fordham Heights sidewalk is draining the patience of pedestrians.

Robert Lozada, an activist from Community Boards 4 and 5, says he's been out at 188th Street and Elm Place every day alerting people about the hazard. He says it's especially dangerous for kids walking to and from a nearby school.

News 12 reached out to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Officials say they weren't aware of the problem, but should be able to fix the problem in six days.
