Transportation – General Averages – Stranding of a Vessel
In 1949, SS San Antonio, owned by AMInc, embarked on its voyage to Batanes via Aparri. It was carrying various cargoes, one of which was owned by Agan. One fine weather day, it accidentally ran aground the mouth of the Cagayan River due to the sudden shifting of the sands below. SS San Antonio then needed the services of Luzon Stevedoring Co. to tow the ship and make it afloat so that it can continue its journey.
