Wife of Missing Sub Pilot Related to Titanic Victims
Wendy Rush, the wife of OceanGate CEO and missing tourist sub pilot Stockton Rush, is the great-great-granddaughter of Titanic victims, Isidor and Ida Straus. The Strauses were co-owners of the Macy's department store. Ida refused to leave the doomed vessel on a lifeboat without her husband. In the present day, their family is divided. Rush's cousin, Brett Gladstone, says he opposes tourist trips to the wreckage.
