NEW YORK (PIX11) -- A No. 5 train was taken out of service Friday after a rider saw a bedbug fall of a homeless man, the Daily News reported.

Transit officials told the paper it fumigated two crew locker rooms.

It was the fifth time this week that a train had been pulled out of service.  Bedbugs were previously found on four N trains.

Many people are calling for fumigating the entire N-line, but an MTA spokesman says there are no plans for that to happen.
