Bris Brothers Pulled From Backyard Pool Last Week Have Died

This breaks our hearts. 

The family of two brothers, Michael Porter, 2, and Josh Porter, 16 months, who were pulled unconscious from a backyard pool in Morayfield last week have confirmed that both boys have passed away.

The two toddlers were rushed to hospital by paramedics, both in a critical condition just after 4:30pm last Monday 25 March. 

But in a devastating turn of events, could not be saved. 

There is no confirmation on when the two young children passed away. 

The parents shared a statement with news.com.au. 

“It is with great sadness that we advise that our boys are no longer with us,” the parents said.

“Our family is incredibly grateful for the support and care provided by staff of the Queensland Children’s Hospital.”

The parents, Joe and Carmen, also previously lost their daughter who died prematurely at 16 weeks old. 

Our thoughts go out to family and friends at this difficult time.
