London: A woman was forced to drop her trousers in the middle of a packed rush hour subway train in the US when a rat ran up her trouser leg, it was reported here Monday.
Ana Vargas, 40, was sitting in the train as it approached New York`s Columbus Circle station when the rodent suddenly crawled up her leg.
Varagas, a hotel supervisor, said she initially thought it was her trousers moving until she realised it was something crawling inside.
Despite violently shaking her trousers, the large rodent still didn`t drop out.
"I said, `Oh, my God - it`s an animal on my leg`".
"I was shaking, but nothing was coming out . . . I had to pull my pants down in front of everyone on the train," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
Thankfully, Vargas` blushes were saved when three men tried to shield her from other people in the carriage.
