Delayed Subway Passengers Came Together to Give This Graduate an Unforgettable Ceremony

A nursing student in NY made a decision to hold his own graduation ceremony on the subway after being stuck underground for hours. The only difference? Alcantara was unable to make the actual ceremony due to massive train delays.

Cellphone video that has now gone viral shows the student, Jerich Alcantara, celebrating his graduation right on the subway auto, CBS New York reports. Then on the rescue train, his friend played a graduation song and the whole subway auto got in on the act. What ensued was a heartwarming moment that included a friend presenting Jerich with a "diploma" on his cell phone, as well as a stranger playing Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" on some speakers to set the mood.
