“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,” CEO John Foley said in a statement.

In a statement to The Sun, Peloton said: “There are no words to express the shock and sadness everyone at Peloton feels as a result of this terrible tragedy.
