LAS VEGAS -- The 2-year-old son of former NFL star quarterback Randall Cunningham has died in what authorities on Wednesday called an apparent backyard hot tub accident.
The Clark County coroner's office identified the child as Christian Cunningham, and said the cause of death was pending.
Las Vegas police Officer Marcus Martin, a department spokesman, said the death appeared to have been an accidental drowning, but authorities were still investigating.
Cunningham, 47, is an ordained minister and pastor of a church six blocks off Las Vegas Boulevard that he runs with his wife, Felicity. Christian Cunningham was the youngest of their four children.
Messages left by The Associated Press for the family at the church and Cunningham's house were not immediately returned Wednesday. A church official said Wednesday there were no immediate plans for a memorial service.

My heart goes out to the Cunningham family, as I know exactly what they are going through at this time, having almost lost my son to the same time of accident. Cunningham is a good man, and great QB, even if he played for the Vikings
