    Randall Cunningham's 2 year old son was found drowned in a backyard hot tub

    [url]http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/ex-qb-cunninghams-son-drowns-in-hot-tub?GT1=39002[/url]


    Former NFL star Randall Cunningham’s 2-year-old son was found dead after apparently drowning in a backyard hot tub at his Las Vegas home, authorities said.

    The Las Vegas Review Journal reported the news late Tuesday.

    The child was discovered at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday by a woman and several children at Cunningham’s house.

    The woman removed the boy from the water and attempted to perform CPR, Las Vegas police Lt. Dennis Flynn said.

    The child was pronounced dead at St. Rose Dominican Hospital Siena campus in Henderson.

    The death was being investigated by abuse and neglect detectives, but Flynn said the drowning appeared to be an accident.

    Cunningham, 47, played for 16 years in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings before retiring in 2002.

    The former UNLV star is now an ordained minister and pastor of a church in Las Vegas. He wasn't home when the boy was found.

    You can only hope that an incident like this leads someone to securely cover a hot tub and prevent another unnecessary death. Take lessons out of tragedies.

    [QUOTE]Since 1990, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports more than 800 deaths in whirlppools and hot tubs. About one-fifth of those were drownings of children under age 5.

    [U]The agency advises consumers to place a locked safety cover on the spa whenever it is not in use and keep children away unless there is constant adult supervision.[/U]

    In addition, since 1990, CPSC reports 43 incidents (including 12 deaths), involving hair or clothing being sucked into the suction fitting of a spa, hot tub, or whirlpool, causing the victim's head to be held under water.[/QUOTE]

    This type of accident is one of my biggest fears as a parent. My son loves the water and will seek it out whenever he's around it. He doesn't have any appreciation of the dangers pools/hot tubs present.

    My heart goes out to Randall and his family. I can't think of anything more devastating than to lose a child.

    Actually a large percentage of drownings happen during supervision.

    what good can possibly come of something tragic like this? If God really does have a plan, how would taking a 2 year old fit into it?

    I am a good Catholic boy but I would not blame the parents if they lost faith after this. Nobody deserves to lose a child like this. I have a 5 year old son and he is my life. If something like this happened............................... well I cant even go there.

    I pray for Randall Cunningham and his family.
