On the morning of January 30, 1927 a Filipino constabulary sergeant named Benegrado killed six people and wounded seven others aboard the passenger steamship "San Antonio" travelling from Cebu to Misamis, Philippines.
For several hours Benegrado ran amok on the ship with a bowie knife and a rifle, killing in the process five Filipinos and wounding seven others. He also killed lieutenant Robert A. Young, an American of the Philippine Constabulary, with two shots and a stab through the heart, when he tried to subdue him. While the remaining passengers and crew took refuge under hatches Benegrado lowered a boat and escaped, but was arrested by constabulary forces when reaching the shore.
