Three people were killed and four others injured when a small passenger plane collided with a parked helicopter in Nepal Sunday.

Pandey said the accident occurred at around 9:10 a.m. local time at Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla, a major gateway to Mount Everest.

The death toll in Sunday's aircraft collision in Nepal's Lukla airport climbed to three, according to Nepal Police Headquarters, Trend reports citing Xinhua.

Another policeman died in hospital in Kathmandu, a police spokesman confirmed.

The aircraft had hit the helicopters of Manang Air and Shree Air. An airport official said the plane slipped towards the helipad during take-off and collided with the two helicopters.
