According to Honduras newspaper La Prensa, both were seriously injured and needed to be taken to hospital.
A fun vacation by a newlywed Israeli couple in Roatan, one of Honduras' Bay Islands, ended in tragedy after an unfortunate zip-line accident.
"The girl stayed halfway on the cable and the guy came from behind and hit her up there", local fire chief Wilmer Guerrero is quoted as saying in the Spanish-language La Prensa.
A newlywed Israeli husband has died following a freak zip-lining accident with his wife aboard a cruise ship.
Fanken was later airlifted to a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., hospital where she underwent emergency surgery, according to Guerrero.
According to La Prensa, Fanken was transported to the US on Friday, and Israeli embassy staff in Guatemala traveled to Honduras to pick up Tishman's body and return it to Israel.
The newlyweds were on a cruise to celebrate their honeymoon when they made a decision to zip line over a treetop canopy near Roatan, the New York Post (NYP) translated from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. This excursion over a treetop canopy has been suspended, Torres said.
Royal Caribbean is "providing support and assistance to the guests' family and friends", Torres said. The Cruise advertised the zip-lining service as an "Extreme Caribe Zip Line Tour", which allows people to zip across 1,950 feet of cable that's 300 feet off the ground. Its beaches and jungle wildlife make it a popular tourist attraction for diving, zip lining and hiking. This number does not include the "thousands of amateur zip lines".
