(Scroll down for video) New York City residents have a reputation of being tough.

However, when a rat appeared, about 50 passengers just freaked out.

The incident that was caught on video, occurred on a Brooklyn bound A train on Monday morning. Jinais Ponnampadikkal Kader, who uploaded one of the videos to YouTube, said that he saw grown men jumping on their seats in fear.

The rat appeared when the train arrived at the Fulton Street station. Someone began screaming “rat on the train!” But by the time everyone realized what was happening, the doors closed and the train entered the underground tunnel.

The passengers remained stuck with the rat until the next stop. Most Straphangers in the video can be seen jumping on their seats, while others just lifted their legs.

Almost everyone with a phone, began recording the bizarre incident. While there was a lot of yelling, there are also plenty of laughs and smiles.
