Husband Killed in Zip Line Collision With Wife During Honeymoon Cruise

Honduran authorities have launched an investigation to determine exactly how the accident happened

Fanken got stuck about halfway through, and her husband soon slammed into her, the fire chief tells the Washington Post.

Fankan was taken to a hospital immediately after the accident and then airlifted to a different facility in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she underwent surgery.

Following their wedding on Saturday, the newlyweds had boarded the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Allure of the Seas in the U.S. before arriving in Roatán five days later.

Honduran media outlets named them as 24-year-old Egael Tishman and wife Shif Fanken, 27.

The Israeli Embassy in Guatemala is now arranging for Tishman's body to be flown back to Israel for burial, reports said.


The newlyweds were on a cruise to celebrate their honeymoon when they chose to zip line over a treetop canopy near Roatan, the New York Post (NYP) translated from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The cruise line says it is "providing support and assistance to the guests" family and friends'.

The couple booked the Extreme Caribe Zip Line Tour through the Royal Caribbean website, according to a local firefighter.

The newlyweds were reportedly on a cruise that made a stop in the popular tourist destination. About three years ago, a woman traveling on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship visiting the island was seriously injured while zip-lining, Walker wrote on his blog Cruise Law News. These injuries come after an increase in popularity for zip-lining. The most common types of injuries included broken bones, concussions, bruises and strains or sprains.
