Subway riders befriended a cute little bug on the train

TwitterFacebook

Bugs on the New York City subway system rarely get the star treatment, but one lucky insect got vaulted to fame on Thursday when passengers discovered it on their train.

Instead of meeting an instantaneous, gruesome death at the hand, shoe, or newspaper of a commuter, something weird happened to the little green creature. Not only was it spared, but passengers actually picked it up and held it in their handsSamantha Ruddy caught the wholesome moment and shared it for the entire Twitterverse to enjoy. 

There was a cute bug on my train and instead of freaking out everyone in my subway car just took turns holding it. New York is the dumbest and I love itpic.twitter.com/sk6YtW5u0V
