"This is what you get for not riding the subway," the cruel bastard soul of New York City boomed at a cab rider earlier today, exploding a manhole cover at them.

NBC 4 News reports that the innocent cab driver, just trying to make a living ferrying the city's most self-important residents around, was also unfortunately injured.

The incident happened this morning in Midtown, by the corner of 44th and Lex.

The current condition of NYC's newest victims remains unknown.
