Video: Rat Terrorizes Commuters on NYC Subway
"Rat on the train! Rat on the train!"
I strikes us as an oddly specific thing to shout, like "Fire in the movie theater!" or "Komodo dragon in the daycare center!" But it does the job.
The rat runs from side to side, seeming to enjoy itself. The video, which software developer Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader caught on his cell phone, ends when the train stops at Brooklyn's High Street station.
As New Yorkers know, this is a city that can be alienating, impersonal, and lonely. But stories like this are a beautiful reminder that it doesn't take much to bring New Yorkers together.
As of Thursday morning, Kader's video has more than one million views.
