THE twin brother of the toddler who drowned in the family pool on the Central Coast on Monday has also died.

Matthew Hill died at Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick yesterday, aged 21 months.

He had been airlifted to Sydney from Gosford Hospital, where his sibling, Ethan, had died after they were hauled from the pool unconscious. Yesterday the family issued a statement through the hospital asking the media to respect their privacy.

"The Hill family extends their gratitude to family, friends and members of the public for their interest in Matthew's condition," the statement said. "The Hill family requests that their privacy be maintained during this difficult time."

Ethan had died despite the frantic efforts of his grandfather, his 16-year-old uncle, neighbours, police and paramedics to resuscitate him after he was pulled unconscious from the pool on St Huberts Island, near Woy Woy, at 7.15pm on Monday.

Matthew was resuscitated but had remained in a critical condition until his death.

The toddlers' grandfather and uncle were caring for them at the time. Their mother was not present when the twins rode toy plastic pushbikes from a back room to the rear of the house and gained access to the pool.

Police were investigating whether the pool gate was propped ajar with a clothes peg to make way for the family dog. They will prepare a report for the coroner.

One of the residents said Atunga Place was very quiet last night with the news of Matthew's death. Another neighbour described the twins as "beautiful little men".
