(Scroll down for video) A man in New York, freaked out after waking up on a train to find a large rat crawling on his chest, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

31-year-old Antony Lin said that he quickly pulled out his phone to record the rat crawling on the sleeping man while riding the 7 train in Manhattan on Sunday around 3:00 a.m.

Lin said that the huge rat hopped onto the train when the doors opened at the previous stop. A couple on the train moved to another car when they saw the large rat running around.

Lin said that the man, who was not identified, was asleep long before the rat crawled toward him. The rat crawled up the leg of the sleeping man and made its way to his shoulder.

Eventually, the man woke up and freaked out. The man can be heard screaming while trying to push away the large rat. Police have warned passengers to stay awake while traveling on trains in order to prevent theft and other crimes.

Now, passengers can add rats to the list of reasons to stay awake on trains.
