Our media partner 1011 Nowlearned from family members that Ryan Kizzier, who owns Lincoln Plumbing, is the man who was hurt at the Nebraska Animal Medical and Emergency Center when the ceiling collasped.

Police said he was working on a leaky pipe above a dog kennel when the ceiling came down. The building is located near 56th and Old Cheney Road.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue said the contractor was pinned under ceiling debri and they had to use airbags to create a pocket to remove him within minutes of arriving on scene.

The family of Kizzier describes him as “the funniest guy in the room” and friends from all over are flying in to see him.

NAMC re-opened its clinic Tuesday but said boarding and daycare may be limited. You can call the office at 402-423-9100 with any questions.
