Kathmandu: At least six people, including five Mexicans, died in a helicopter crash in Nepal on Tuesday.

The crash occurred in Lamjura of Likhupike Rural Municipality in Solukhumbu district.

Six people–Captain Chet Bahadur Gurung and five Mexican nationals–were aboard the aircraft, Raju Neupane, operation and safety manager of Manang Air told The Kathmandu Post.

According to rural municipality deputy chair Nwang Lhakpa Sherpa, locals have informed that the chopper was found crashed at Chihandanda in Lamjura of Bhakanje village.
