Both were conscious at the hospital despite suffering multiple serious injuries, but Tishman eventually died, perhaps of a brain hemorrhage.

An Israeli man celebrating his honeymoon on a Carnival Cruise died on Thursday after he collided with his wife while zip lining in Honduras, according to Honduran newspaper La Prensa.

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

Egael Tishman, 24, and Shif Fanken, 27, collided with each other over a treetop canopy near Roatan, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The two suffered a number of serious injuries, including fractured ribs, Guerrero said.

Fanken was later airlifted to a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., hospital where she underwent emergency surgery, according to Guerrero.

An investigation has been launched into how the accident occurred.

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.

Tishman and Franken were visiting Roatan, one of Honduras' Caribbean Bay Islands, for their honeymoon.

The cruise line offers a zip-lining excursion in Roatan called the "Extreme Caribe Zip Line Tour".

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