The NYC subway system can be extremely unreliable at times, causing people to be late for work and appointments. At this time of year, as many people are graduating, its the worst time to get stuck on the subway. One unlucky passenger missed his graduation ceremony due to extreme subway delays.
Jerich Marco Alcantara was on the E train as all his fellow students were walking across the stage at Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing. Despite the unfortunate situation, his friends and even strangers helped create a graduation experience for him, right on the train. Sure it didn't have the same amount of fan fare, but the thoughtfulness alone may have eased some of Jerich's disappointment. Check out the footage below; there are still some good people left out there!
