Husband Killed in Zip Line Collision With Wife During Honeymoon Cruise

Husband Killed in Zip Line Collision With Wife During Honeymoon Cruise

Both Tishman and Franken survived the initial collision and were conscious at the hospital after they were extracted from a wooded area, but reportedly suffered serious injuries, including broken ribs.

As she remained halfway down the cable, her husband came gliding down the zip line from behind, slamming into her, Guerrero said.

Egael Tishman, 24, and Shif Fanken, 27, were on a cruise that stopped in Roatan, and they chose to go for a zipline adventure over the treetops Thursday afternoon.

Two ambulances rushed to the site of the zip line, located in the French Harbor neighborhood near a highway that stretches to the north side of the island, Guerrero said. He died in hospital.

The husband, who had complained of problems breathing, died the next day and his wife was flown to a hospital in Florida, where she had surgery and is in stable condition.


An investigation has been launched into how the accident occurred.

A honeymooning couple have had their holiday end in tragedy after a zip lining adventure in Honduras turned fatal. 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.

The Israeli foreign Ministry contacted the Embassy in Guatemala with the objective of the transport bodies of the deceased home.

Royal Caribbean is "providing support and assistance to the guests' family and friends", Torres said. Prior to 2012, there were about 10 zip-lines in the United States.
