Hospital officials unload the dead body of a plane crash victim outside the Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu Nepal Sunday

Aviation official Raj Kumar Chhetri was cited by The Associated Press as saying that a plane belonging to Summit Air was trying to take off from Lukla for Ramechhap, Nepal, on the morning of Sunday, April 14, when it crashed.

The plane crash at the Tenzing-Hillary airport in Nepal left three people dead, injuring four others. "The injured have been sent to Kathmandu for treatment", Lukla Airport official Ema Nath Adhikari told Agence France-Presse.

3 killed in aircraft accident near Everest: The wreckage of a Summit Air turbo-prop plane lying in between two helicopters on an airstrip at Nepal's Lukla Airport after the plane hit them during take-off yesterday.

The co-pilot of the plane and a police official stationed at the airport for security were killed on the spot, while another policeman died in hospital, succumbing to a serious injury.

The airport can only handle helicopters and small, aircraft such as Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porters, DHC-6 Twin Otters, and Dornier Do 228s.

'We are not sure about the cause of the accident'.

Both aircrafts are private airline companies that cater to tourists and Nepalese in the country's remote areas.

The Kathmandu Post reported that Airport authorities probing into the matter believe the co-pilot had significantly few flying hours amounting to less than a year and a half experience before taking on the World's Most Dangerous Airport.

The worst air crash in recent years in Nepal happened in March 2018, when a AS-Bangla, Bangladeshi airline, plane crashed during landing at Kathmandu International Airport, with 67 passengers and four crew on board. But the airport has been dubbed one of the world's most risky because of the short runway and hard approach. However, the identity of the people killed in the crash is still unknown.
