TITANIC: Only Seconds From the time the lookouts sounded the alert, the officers on the bridge had only 37 seconds to react before the Titanic hit the iceberg.

The Titanic did bank left, but it wasn't quite enough.

TITANIC ¥ (1912) Isador and Ida Straus. Isador owned Macy's. When the Titanic began to sink, Ida refused to get on a lifeboat without her husband. They were inseperable in life, writing to each other every day they were apart. He was offered a place with her, but HE refused, saying younger men should go in his place. He put his wife's maid on instead. They were last seen sitting together quietly on the deck of the Titanic. I hope to face my end with as much grace.

Perhaps the most famous true love story from Titanic is that of Isidor and Rosalie Straus, who perished with the Titanic. Rosalie refused a lifeboat. Instead she turned to her husband and said, "We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go."
