NEW YORK — A commuter's cellphone video of a rat scaring New York City subway riders has gone viral.

Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader (jih-NYE'-ees poh-nahm-PAH'-dihk-kahl KAH'-dur) shot the iPhone video Monday.

Kader told The Associated Press the A train was leaving the Fulton Street station in lower Manhattan when someone shouted, "Rat on the train!" Kader says he wasn't scared but others on the morning rush-hour train jumped onto their seats.

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

More than 577,000 people had watched the YouTube video by Wednesday afternoon.

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