Michael and Yitzhak Gross, ages six and eight, who survived the tragic Jerusalem pesticide poisoning of their family earlier this week, are now in stable condition, Israel Radio reported on Sunday.

Both brothers were admitted to Schneider Medical Children's Center in Petah Tikva in a critical state on Wednesday after an exterminator had fumigated the Gross residence. The family's two and four year old daughters passed away shortly after arriving at the hospital. 

Israel Radio reported that the condition of the surviving brothers has since stabilized although they remain under anesthetics and on respirators as well as heart-lung machines.
