Every subway riders' worst nightmare recently became a reality for one rider.

A fellow rider caught a rat on video crawling freely through a subway car on the Number 4 train, and posted the video on YouTube.

The rat then momentarily crawls up a sleeping man's body before being shooed away.

When reached for comment, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it routinely cleans station platforms and track areas, but also asks customers to dispose of their trash properly. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
