HILARIOUS: Grown men scream in horror at rat aboard NYC subway


NEW YORK (TRP) — What started out as a normal commute aboard a Brooklyn-bound A-train Monday, ended in complete horror for a pack of commuters.

Riders screamed and scurried for their lives after coming face to face with a sewer rat that managed to get on board a subway train near Fulton Street.

YouTube user Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader captured the entire scene as grown men and women jumped onto their seats to dodge the furry, 4-legged critter.

According to Ponnampadikkal Kader, the rat “joined us at the Fulton street station on the A train going downtown.”

“Someone getting off the train was screaming “RAT on the train!”. But by the time everyone realized what was happening, the doors closed and the train entered the tunnel. We were stuck with him till the other end.”

The terrifying ordeal has many questioning exactly how tough the average New Yorker is.

“Is this a joke?” asked Mike Robertson of Connecticut, while watching the now-viral video. “Pansies! Every single one of them!”

Rodents running amok in New York City aren’t anything new. The trendy Soho bakery behind the beloved cronut craze recently was closed due to an apparent “severe mice infestation,” according to the Health Department.

Less than a week ago, shocking footage of a Midtown Dunkin’ Donuts crawling with rats went viral, prompting officials to also shut it down.

Considering their terrifying growth in numbers, city officials have accepted the fact that eliminating vermin from the city is unrealistic. The only thing residents can do at this point is not liter. And if they’re aiming to be the next YouTube star, screaming the loudest and jumping the highest at the site of a rat will definitely help that cause.
