Ex-NFL star quarterback Randall Cunningham’s 2-year-old son has died in what authorities 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 said the death appeared to have been an accidental drowning, but authorities were still investigating.
