This is one of those stories that just makes me sick to my stomach, and being a father myself, my heart just aches for Randall Cunningham and his family right now.

Cunningham’s 2 1/2 year old son Christian, seen in the picture above with his dad, died yesterday after drowning in the backyard hot tub of a South Las Vegas home. A woman at the house found the boy floating in the hot tub around 4:30 p.m., and immediately began performing CPR. Paramedics arrived and took Christian to St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Siena campus, where he eventually passed away.

Las Vegas police believe the drowning to be accidental.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Randall Cunningham and the entire Cunningham family during this time of unimaginable grief and sorrow.
