A US couple, who were married for nearly 62 years, died just hours apart, their granddaughter has said.

Don and Maxine Simpson from Bakersfield, California, died four hours apart on adjoining beds, holding hands during some of their final hours.

Melissa Sloan said her grandmother died first and when her body was removed from the room, her husband followed.
