The incident left the husband dead and the wife seriously injured, according to theWashington 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. The couple had been married for less than a month. The couple were on a seven-day cruise on Allure of the Seas, which departed from Fort Lauderdale on July 1 with stops in Nassau, Bahamas; Cozumel, Mexico; Roatan, Honduras; and Costa Maya, Mexico.

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

Royal Caribbean is "providing support and assistance to the guests' family and friends", Torres said.

Ambulances arrived at the scene shortly after the collision occurred. The pair sustained serious injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital where Tishman succumbed to his injuries. "He was evaluated in the ambulance and was given oxygen", Guerrero said.

Guerrero was informed Friday morning that Tishman had died hours earlier.

While Guerrero said he was not told how Tishman died, other reports suggest he died of a brain hemorrhage.

Fanken was transported via air to a hospital in the United States and is believed to be in a stable condition.

The Israeli foreign Ministry contacted the Embassy in Guatemala with the objective of the transport bodies of the deceased home. These injuries come after an increase in popularity for zip-lining. As of 2012, there are over 200.

There has been no further update on Fanken's condition.
