Peloton CEO John Foley emailed Tread+ owners Thursday morning to report the accident and to urge its users to keep pets and children away from the exercise equipment.
"I'm reaching out to you today because I recently learned about a tragic accident involving a child and the Tread+, resulting in, unthinkably, a death," he wrote. "While we are aware of only a small handful of incidents involving the Tread+ where children have been hurt, each one is devastating to all of us at Peloton, and our hearts go out to the families involved."
