Honeymooning couple involved in fatal zip line accident in Central America

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.

Zip-lining as been suspended at a Royal Caribbean Cruises excursion in Honduras after a couple was involved in a deadly crash.

"The girl stayed halfway on the cable and the guy came from behind and hit her", local firefighter Wilmer Guerrero told La Prensa newspaper.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry refused to identify the couple, but local Honduran news revealed the couple to be 24-year-old Egael Tishman and 27-year-old Shif Fanken.

"The young man complained that he could not breathe", Guerrero said.

She underwent surgery and was in stable condition, Guerrero said.

This couple's honeymoon turned into a nightmare.

Authorities are continuing to investigate how the accident happened.

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

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

The researchers also found that this increase came with a rise in injuries related to zip-lining: About 16,850 nonfatal injuries related to zip-lining were treated in USA emergency rooms from 1997 through 2012. Prior to 2012, there were about 10 zip-lines in the United States. This number does not include the "thousands of amateur zip lines".
