An Upper West Side gym was a bit too "cutting edge," a Manhattan beauty queen charges in a lawsuit.
Micaela Lopez Bianchi, 28, says several shards of glass punctured her lower back when she used an exercise mat at the Equinox at Broadway and West 92nd Street.
López Bianchi - the 2013 Miss World Next Top Model - said she was doing crunches last month when she realized something wasn't right.
"I felt a very strong pinch on my lower back," the Argentine beauty told The Post.
"There were four pieces [of glass] that got into my lower back . . . I was bleeding," López Bianchi said.
She couldn't immediately retrieve all of the centimeter-size glass shards from her back - and said the $235-per-month gym should have been more careful.
Her $100,000 Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit notes that she is "an international model who must maintain a pristine appearance for her work."
She says she works out at the gym "virtually every day," and adds she had complained to a manager about broken glass earlier, to no avail. Equinox didn't return calls for comment.
