Cause of death: Accident

Show Details Note: TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — A U.S. woman fell 65 feet to her death during a zip-line ride through the jungle on the Caribbean island of Roatan, police said Thursday.

Barbara Sue Fojtasek, 44, was riding along a steel cable suspended between trees in the jungle when a harness holding her apparently broke on Tuesday, Honduran police said in a news release.

Fojtasek was taken to a private clinic on the island, then transferred to a hospital in the mainland city of San Pedro Sula, where she died on Wednesday.

Fojtasek had arrived in Roatan a week ago from Texas, said police, who did not identify her hometown or state. Authorities said they are investigating the cause of the fall.

Zip lines have become popular in Central America, especially in Costa Rica where they're strung high in the trees and give a thrilling ride. They've also been installed in places such as Whistler, B.C., and Southeast Alaska where many cruise passengers ride them during shore excursions
