A spokesman for the local ambulance service confirmed that the twin brothers had died.
They said in a statement: “Rescue Care Paramedics arrived on the scene to find the twins had somehow fallen into the family pool.
“Paramedics assessed the two and attempted to resuscitate them.
“However, their attempts were not successful and both boys were declared deceased on the scene.”
The boy’s grandfather Ivan Ikes said the pair had died after being left with their nanny and had somehow got outside without her knowing.
He wrote on social media: “The boys got up and went outside and somehow, after fiddling, got the gate to the pool fence open.
“One kid fell in and the other, after what seemed like beckoning to his brother to come out, jumped in to save him.
