A 6-year-old girl was sucked under a Peloton treadmill — suffering severe scrapes and bruises, her father said Monday.

“It was pretty traumatic,” Brandon Ratliffe told ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” of the incident involving the embattled Peloton Tread+ model and his daughter Jocelyn — providing photos of her badly scraped, reddened and bruised leg.

“She fell, and the treadmill pulled her leg underneath it.”

Federal regulators issued an urgent warning over the weekend, telling owners with children to stop using the Peloton Tread+ after 39 incidents in which kids were hurt — including one in which a child died.

The feds released a terrifying video showing a boy being dragged under one of the devices. The child was eventually freed and was OK.

“CPSC staff believes the Peloton Tread+ poses serious risks to children for abrasions, fractures, and death,” the US Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement Saturday.
