Randall Cunningham's Son Drowns

Christian Cunningham, the 2-year old son of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, drowned Tuesday in a hot tub at the family's Las Vegas home, Mark Anderson of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The body was discovered by a woman watching the Cunningham children at 4:30pm. She removed the body from the hot tub, and began performing CPR. Neglect and abuse detectives are investigating, but no charges are expected.

"It appears that it’s just a complete tragedy," Metro Lt. Dennis Flynn said. "It only takes a brief minute for someone to take their eye off the child."

Cunningham was in San Diego at the time of the accident.

Cunningham, who attended UNLV, spent 16 years in the NFL, spending the first 11 years of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles. Cunningham went to three Pro Bowls (1988-90) as an Eagle before spending three seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, including one Pro Bowl season in 1998. Cunningham spent one season each with the Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Cunningham family.
