Randall Cunningham's 2-year-old son dies

The 2-year-old son of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham died after he was found floating in a backyard hot tub Tuesday afternoon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Christian Cunningham would have been 3 in December, according to friends of the family. Randall Cunningham, pastor of Remnant Ministries who played for the Eagles, Vikings, Ravens and Cowboys, performs baptisms in the hot tub at his home, which is near the church.

A woman at Cunningham's house was with several children when she found the boy at about 4:30 p.m., Las Vegas police Lt. Dennis Flynn said. She removed the boy from the hot tub and began performing CPR. Paramedics took the child to St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Siena campus, where he died, Flynn said.

Abuse and neglect detectives were investigating the incident, according to the Review-Journal. Flynn said the drowning appeared to be an accident.

Cunningham was believed to be in San Diego or on his way back at the time of the drowning.

Let's pray for and work toward fewer headlines like this. At the earliest stage possible, start observing and enforcing the family's water safety rules and teaching kids to swim.
