NEW YORK, March 30 (UPI) -- A New York subway rider shared video of a large rat crawling on a sleeping passenger on an early morning train.
Anthony Lin shared the video to Instagram which was filmed at about 3 a.m. and shows the rat sitting on the lap of a man sleeping in a black quilted jacket.
"3 a.m. on the 7 train. MTA subways come equipped with cuddly rats," Lin wrote.
The rat can be seen climbing up the sleeping man's arm up to his shoulders, before grazing the back of his neck.
This contact soon awakens the man and when he realizes the rat's presence he attempts to swat the rat away.
At this point Lin points the camera away from the man, but a shrieking noise can be heard coming from an undetermined location.
