(Las Vegas, NV) -- Former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham's two year-old son Christian passed away yesterday due to an apparent accidental drowning in a hot tub at the family home.

Cunningham, whom was a former star at UNLV before being drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles 37th overall in 1985, is now a minister in Las Vegas. He regularly uses the hot tub for baptisms.

KTNV-TV in Las Vegas reports that the incident is still under investigation but should be ruled an accident.

Christian was found around 4:30 by an unnamed woman at the family home and the woman immediately attempted CPR. Christian was pronounced dead at St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Siena campus later in the evening.

Christian Cunningham was to turn three in December and is one of four children for Randall and his wife Felicity.

Randall was a four-time pro bowler and had a career 56.6 completion percentage for the Eagles, Cowboys, Vikings and Ravens.
