Getting married is an extremely stressful affair - and though the honeymoon is supposed to be a relaxing time as newlyweds, many people have died during their honeymoons. Whether they planned to spend the time relaxing, adventuring, or just enjoying each other's company, the honeymoon should be the first adventure in a long and happy marriage.
Unfortunately, it's hard to have a long and happy marriage when your significant other doesn't make it home. You'd be surprised by just how many instances there are of people who died on their honeymoons. Death is a tragedy, and death on vacation is even worse, but it just doesn't get any worse than death on a honeymoon.From murders to tragic accidents, far too many people have experienced honeymoon deaths. The stories of the surviving spouses are more often than not heartrending tearjerkers that will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Luckily, most people come back from their honeymoons ready to start their new lives, but that just makes it so much more sad when someone doesn't.
An Israeli couple, Egael Tishman and Shif Fanken, were on their honeymoon cruise on a Royal Caribbean International Ship when tragedy struck on July 7, 2018. The couple were on a cruise ship-excursion near West Bay, Roatan, where they planned to go zip-lining.
Fanken went first, and she got stuck halfway down the zip-line. Her husband came after her – not realizing she was stuck – and he slammed into her. Both Tishman and Fanken's ribs were broken, and emergency workers transported the couple to the hospital.
Unfortunately, Tishman did not survive the incident. Wilmer Guerrero, commander of the Roatan Fire Department, told The Washington Post that "the young man complained he could not breathe... he was evaluated in the ambulance and was given oxygen." Guerrero was informed the next day that Tishman died. While the exact cause of death has not been released, a Honduras radio station, Radio America, said it could have been due to a brain hemorrhage.
