Heechul fractured his left leg in five places, including his femur, knee, and ankle, requiring him to be in surgery for six hours. He also sustained other injuries, including a tear in his tongue which required stitches.[55]

Heechul was advised to stop all activities for a period of twelve weeks. He was released from the hospital on 13 September 2006 but he continued to receive out-patient care. He returned to the hospital to have a second surgery to remove some of the iron rods in his leg on October 10 and briefly returned to work in late October to film the final three episodes of an MBC youth sitcom while still in a cast and on a wheelchair.

He attributes his survival and ability to recover to the fact that he wore his seat belt and has championed seat belt safety since, including after the September 2014 accident involving the entirety of Ladies' Code that killed Ladies' Code members Go Eun-bi (EunB) and Kwon Ri-se (RiSe), during which EunB, who had not been wearing a seat belt, had died on impact.[58]
