The Israeli couple were zip-lining in Roatan, Honduras, during a port call on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas.

The boy died at the scene and his wife was taken to the hospital of the city of Fort Lauderdale, state of Florida. She is now in a stable condition, reports USA Today.

Zip-lining as been suspended at a Royal Caribbean Cruises excursion in Honduras after a couple was involved in a deadly crash.

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. They suffered a number of serious injuries, including broken ribs, Guerrero told The Washington Post.

The couple booked the Extreme Caribe Zip Line Tour through the Royal Caribbean website, according to a local firefighter.

Guerrero said he had not yet learned the cause of death, but Honduras's Radio America reported that it may have been a brain hemorrhage.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said that it is arranging for Mr Tishman's body to be flown back to his home country.

Authorities are continuing to investigate how the accident happened.

The researchers also found that this increase came with a rise in injuries related to zip-lining: About 16,850 nonfatal injuries related to zip-lining were treated in US emergency rooms from 1997 through 2012. As of 2012, there are over 200.

There have been no further updates on her current status.
