(Scroll down for video) Train passengers in Illinois, could not get off soon enough after spotting a woman with bed bug infested clothes, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

Michael Moore was riding on the Chicago Transit Authority train in Chicago, when he noticed a woman that appeared to be homeless.

She carried a black garbage bag that had numerous holes.

When he looked closer, he saw thousands of bed bugs crawling on her clothes inside the bag. Moore quickly pulled out his phone and recorded a video of the bed bug infested clothes.

Moore then notified the conductor of the train, and officials were called to deal with the problem. CTA workers came on board the train and disinfected the entire car.

After 10 minutes, the conductor was given the go ahead to continue.

Moore noted that the woman got off the train and probably got on another one, placing other passengers at risk of being infested with bed bugs.

“Seen on Chicago CTA Red Line around 2:30 p.m. on Friday. Homeless lady was sleeping, next to her was a bag of clothing. Bed bugs were scrambling over the clothing everywhere.

“I notified the operator, who called in a cleaning crew. They quarantined and cleaned this car, while the rest of the train was still in use. The homeless lady got off, and waited for the next train.

“So this presumably happened again. I told the CTA worker who was the head of cleaning, he did not seem to care about the source of the bugs,” Michael Moore wrote on YouTube.
