Two young brothers, pulled unconscious from a backyard pool in Brisbane's north last week, have died in hospital.


The toddlers were found at a home in Morayfield last Monday.


They were in a critical condition in the Queensland Children's Hospital paediatric intensive care unit, but passed away on the weekend.


In a statement, the boys' parents said they were thankful for the support of hospital staff during the ordeal.


"It is with great sadness that we advise that our boys are no longer with us," the statement said.


"Our family is incredibly grateful for the support and care provided by staff of the Queensland Children's Hospital.


"We ask the media to please respect our family's privacy at this sad time."
