Mom Says Son Was Sucked Under Peloton Treadmill

Child Dies in Tragic Accident on Tread+ Treadmill

In March 2021, Peloton CEO John Foley wrote a warning to parents after a child died in a “tragic accident” involving a Peloton Tread+ (“Tread Plus”) treadmill.

He said the company of aware of a “handful of incidents involving the Tread+ where children have been hurt,” but this was the first death.

Foley did not provide details about how the child died, but he urged parents to follow all of the safety warnings and instructions, keep kids and pets away from the Peloton Tread+ at all times, remove the safety key, and store it out of reach of children.

The boy’s father found him pulseless and not breathing, with injuries to his face, neck, and back. The family said he is expected to fully recover.
