Three inmates have escaped from a jail in Quebec City with the help of a helicopter, police say.

It's the second helicopter-aided inmate escape in the Canadian province of Quebec in two years.

Provincial police said the helicopter headed west from the Orsainville Detention Center after the escape on Saturday (local time).

Police identified the inmates on Twitter as Yves Denis, Denis Lefebvre and Serge Pomerleau. Locals who saw them were warned them to not approach them and immediately contact police.

In March of last year, a helicopter pilot was forced at gunpoint to pluck two inmates from the St-Jerome prison on a quiet Sunday afternoon.

Police caught the two escapees and the two suspects who hijacked the helicopter within a few hours of the escape.
