A helicopter with seven people on board crashed into a hillside in central Nepal on Saturday with the condition of the passengers unknown, officials said.
The crew of the aircraft that crashed today minutes after taking-off from the international airport in Kathmandu had felt intense heat in the cabin, reports said.
"When we went to inform the police and other locals about the incident and came back, there was just silence. We saw the plane burning and all of them dead," Tulasa Pokharel, an eyewitness, was quoted as saying.
A plane crashed into a mountain in the Himalayas while trying to land at an airport in northern Nepal on Monday, killing 15 people and injuring six.
