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

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 large 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
