This sleeping man on the New York subway woke up with a start after an unwelcome visitor got a bit too close for comfort.

The unidentified commuter woke screaming after a rat scrambled up his body towards his neck.

Witness Antony Lin filmed the terrifying incident and posted the footage online.

“3AM on the 7 train,” he captioned the short clip.

“MTA subways come equipped with cuddly rats.”

He later spoke to channel WNBC-TV and described the incident as "insane" and "disgusting".

“It's just insane and disgusting overall to see that,” he said.

“I've seen it on the tracks and platform, but never inside the train.”

New York City Police Commissioner has recently told commuters to stay awake to avoid becoming victims of crime on the subway.

Now they may have a different reason to keep their eyes open...
