Rodent on board rattles New Yorkers
(04-10 12:54)

New Yorkers are just as wimpy as anyone else, it appears.
A subway train was leaving the station in lower Manhattan on Monday when someone shouted, “Rat on the train!''
A commuter started recording the ensuing panic on his cellphone.
Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader's shows people screaming as a rat runs from side to side. Many stood on the subway seats.
The chaos ends when the train reaches the next station in Brooklyn.
The 28-year-old Kader is a software developer who lives in Harrison, New Jersey
More than 700,000 people had clicked on the YouTube video by Wednesday afternoon.
Rats scurrying on subway tracks are a common sight in New York. But they are rarely on the station platforms, must less inside the train cars.—AP
