Egael Tishman, 24, and Shif Fanken, 27 were on a zip-line over a treetop canopy near Roatan on the Honduran island of Bahia when they crashed into each other on Thursday, according to local media.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said that it is arranging for Mr Tishman's body to be flown back to his home country. 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 advertised the zip-lining service as an "Extreme Caribe Zip Line Tour", which allows people to zip across 1,950 feet of cable that's 300 feet off the ground.

Royal Caribbean is "providing support and assistance to the guests' family and friends", Torres said. Its beaches and jungle wildlife make it a popular tourist attraction for diving, zip lining and hiking. 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. These injuries come after an increase in popularity for zip-lining.
