The 2-year-old son of former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham died from a hot tub accident at his Las Vegas home, according to reports.

A woman used CPR after the boy was found floating about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, but he died at St. Rose Dominican Hospital, a police officer told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Cunningham, 47, who played college ball at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, was flying home at the time, but other family members were there, according to Vegas TV station Fox5.

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

The boy was named Christian, and Cunningham, who became pastor of a church called Remnant Ministries after his NFL career, sometimes performed baptisms in that hot tub, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
