NEW YORK — While many New Yorkers have seen rats on the the tracks and even on the platforms, one woman was bitten by a rat at the popular Brooklyn Bridge train station in Manhattan.
A woman was bitten by a rat in her foot on the J train platform resulting in a hospital visit.
The New York Daily News reports:
The subway rat attack was unusual, the sources said, particularly because the J train platform at the station has a low rodent population. The platforms in the station for the 4, 5, 6 trains, however, are a complete “rat fest,” one source said.
“I’ve heard of rats running over people’s feet,” the transit worker said, referring to the 4, 5, 6 platforms. “But I’ve never heard of anyone actually bit.”
