The son of former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham drowned Tuesday afternoon in the family's backyard in Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Christian Cunningham, who would have turned 3 in December, was found floating in a backyard hot tub that his pastor father often uses for baptisms.

"It appears that it’s just a complete tragedy,” Lt. Dennis Flynn told Fox5 in Las Vegas on Tuesday. “It only takes a brief minute for someone to take their eye off the child."



Cunningham is the pastor of Remnant Ministries Church in Las Vegas, where he was a star quarterback for UNLV. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cunningham family as it deals with this tragedy.
