Subway Riders Live-Tweet Chaos After Woman Lets Bugs Loose On Crowded Train
If you think you've seen the weirdest and worst of New York City subways, you might want to think again.
On Wednesday, a scene that began with a woman trying to sell crickets on a train ended with those crickets being thrown in the air and the woman urinating on herself.
Passenger Chris Calabrese told the New York Post,
Another passenger, John Ray, posted a short clip of the scene. In the video, you can see the seller going hysterical.
In an effort to explain the story behind the video, Ray posted a caption that read in part,
Other passengers documented the chaos via live tweets, which reveal a little more about what happened and why it happened.
The raw details of the story, as reported by the Post, are insane.
The woman was selling both crickets and worms, apparently, and a passenger hit her. The woman then flung the crickets and worms in the air, prompting passengers to try running to the end of the train car.
An emergency brake was pulled, the train stopped on the Manhattan bridge, the air conditioner went off... and then came the craziest details of all.
Calabrese told the Post,
And on his Twitter account, Mechaber said the woman urinated on herself.
So, next time you're on an inexplicably delayed train (you know it's going to happen soon) just remember, at least that delay's not coming with a side of piss and crickets.
