Zipline Accident on Honeymoon Kills Groom, Injures Bride

Zipline Accident on Honeymoon Kills Groom, Injures Bride

The two sustained serious injuries and were transported to a hospital, where Tishman died overnight, according to the newspaper.

An Israeli couple on a honeymoon cruise aboard a Royal Caribbean International ship were involved in a zip-line accident that left one dead in Honduras last week.

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

Egael Tishman, 24, an Israeli man, crashed into his bride, Shif Fanken, 27, when she became entangled in the cable, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

Fanken was airlifted to the U.S. where she underwent surgery and was in stable condition, Guerrero said.

The Israeli couple were zip-lining in Roatan, Honduras, during a port call on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas.

Perhaps hard to forget, when his England teammate so enjoys reminding him of it. "Yes I remember that day", Alli said. It was a awful game. "They have so many athletic players, to have resisted in defense is very good".


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

An investigation has been launched into how the accident occurred.

Her newlywed husband's body will be sent back to Israel for burial, according to JTA.

The newlyweds were reportedly on a cruise that made a stop in the popular tourist destination.

According to Jim Walker, a lawyer who specializes in maritime litigation, this is not the first time a zip-line excursion in Roatan has resulted in injuries. In the United States, the number of commercial zip lines soared from 10 in 2001 to 200 in 2012, not including thousands of amateur zip lines.
