HONDURAS – June 10, 2018 (foxnews.com).  According to an online news report from foxnews.com, a man from Israel died and his wife sustained life threatening injuries in a zip line collision in Honduras, per news reports.*

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Egael Tishman, aged twenty four, and Shif Fanken, aged twenty seven, were in a zip line collision in Honduras while vacationing on their honeymoon.

The couple was on a cruise that stopped at a popular tourist destination about one hundred sixty miles from Tegucigalpa.    Fanken became stuck on the cable to the zip line and as such, her husband collided with her.  

Per the news report,  “the girl stayed halfway on the cable and the guy came from behind and hit her,” local firefighter Wilmer Guerrero told La Prensa newspaper. 

Fanken was taken to an area hospital, and at the time, was listed as in serious condition.  Tishman died at the scene of the accident.
