• Video: Rat terrifies commuters on NYC subway


    NEW YORK - Turns out, New Yorkers are just as wimpy as anyone else.

    A subway train was leaving the Fulton Street station in lower Manhattan on Monday when someone shouted, "Rat on the train!"

    Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader started recording the ensuing panic on his cellphone.

    His video shows people screaming as a large rat runs from side to side. It ends when the train reaches the High Street station in Brooklyn.

    The 28-year-old Kader is a software developer who lives in Harrison, N.J.

    More than 700,000 people had clicked on the YouTube video by Wednesday afternoon.
