Rescued swimmers die in hospital
A WOMAN and child who were pulled unconscious from a pool north of Brisbane last week have died in hospital.
The 31-year-old woman and 11-year-old boy were Chinese nationals and had been fighting for their lives in separate hospitals following the incident on Thursday, December 20.
The pair were found unconscious at The Grange residential complex pool at Brendale, north of Brisbane.
It is unclear what day the woman and child passed away in hospital.
Two men who were first on the scene had been praised by paramedics for their quick actions after rescuing the pair from the pool and performing CPR.
Nine QAS units, including intensive care paramedics, responded to the incident.
Police are preparing a report for the Coroner.
