Jesus Take The Wheel: Randall Cunnigham’s Son Drowns In Hot Tub

- By Bossip Staff

This is sad news, please keep an eye out for young children this summer:

The son of former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham drowned Tuesday in a hot tub at the family’s Las Vegas home, according to reports in Las Vegas. Christian Cunningham would have turned 3 in December. He was found floating in the backyard hot tub at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, friends of the family told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Police say they do not expect charges to be filed and this was merely an accident. Abuse and neglect detectives are investigating, the newspaper said.

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

Since retiring from the NFL, Cunningham has returned to Las Vegas, where he starred at UNLV, and has founded Remnant Minitsries Church. Cunningham performs baptisms in the hot tub at his home, which is near the church.

“He touched the lives of anybody who stood there and watched him,” a church member who goes by Miss Happy said. “He’s one of those little kids like, ‘I’ll take you home with me.’ I can sit here and talk all day about Christian.”

Randall was believed to be in San Diego at the time of the drowning or on his way back, according to the Review-Journal. Police said other family members were home at the time of the drowning.

Cunningham and his wife, Felicity, have three other children: Randall II, Vashti and Grace.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. R.I.P. little Christian.

    Christian Cunningham is a nice name. Im sorry for the family’s loss.

    I remember when Randall was trying to marry Whitney Houston back in the day. He must thank the Lord daily that she turned him down.

    Poor baby. So sad R.I.P.

    And for all the people saying “why was he left unattended” WHO KNOWS!! Whatever the reason was i’m possitive that they didn’t want him to drown. I’m sure they feel horrible about this and hopefully a tragedy like this won’t happen amongst them again.

    This is truly sad.

    Reminds me of what happened to Mike Tyson’s daughter.

    If hindsight was 20/20, of course no one would let children out of sight.

    I hope guilt and blame doesn’t consume their family and they find comfort in prayer.

    My sympathy to the family. Nothing worse than a child losing their life in a tragedy. Its one thing when your child is sick – but lose them all of a sudden and not expect it, has got to be the most devastating thing in life. God Bless the Family
