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

At that time, the couple was both still alive, though suffering serious injuries.

Egael Tishman, a 24-year-old Israeli, and his wife Shif Fanken, 27, collided while zip-lining through the treetops in Roatan, Honduras, with Fanken becoming stuck halfway down and her husband smashing into her.

"He was evaluated in the ambulance and was given oxygen", Roatan Fire Department commander Wilmer Guerrero told The Washington Post.

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

"The young man complained that he could not breathe".

He later died in hospital.

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

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

Honduran authorities are investigating the incident while the zip line company has promised to assist them with their enquiries.

The Israeli Embassy in Guatemala is now arranging for Tishman's body to be flown back to Israel for burial, reports said. This excursion over a treetop canopy has been suspended, Torres said.

According to the Miami Herald, spokesperson for Royal Caribbean said, "Our Care Team is providing support and assistance to the guests' family and friends". And about 10 years ago, a woman zip-lining in Roatan as part of a Norwegian Spirit cruise died when a cable snapped and she fell 65 feet.
