Rat terrorises New York subway riders

What happens when a rat boards the New York subway? Chaos, standing on chairs and lots of screaming. Check it out. WATCH

New York - While New Yorkers often get a bad rap for being tough and inapproachable, it doesn't seem to take much to get them squealing like little kids. 

At least that's what a YouTube video of subway commuters in Brooklyn freaking out over the appearance of a moderately-sized rat (have you SEEN the monsters that live in the Company's Garden?!) suggests.

According to Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader, who filmed and loaded the video, it was a usual, boring Monday morning commute to work in Brooklyn - when suddenly this little guy appeared on the scene and absolute chaos broke loose. 

"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," he wrote in the caption to his video.
