The 21-year-old Loan was airlifted to a military hospital in Kuwait. He was listed in serious condition.
Army officials told Donna Loan and her husband, John, that their son is likely being transported to a military hospital in Germany.
The Loans were told that Adam's injuries occurred when the fencing he was securing came into contact with an electrical source.
Adam Loan, a member of the Army's 101st Airborne Division's Delta Strike Force, shipped to the Persian Gulf from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, in February. He joined the Army in February 2002.))

At the zoo you can climb up a newly constructed platform to get up close and personal with the giraffees.
You can feed them too - the zoo sells a measured portions of giraffe food.
But building the platform was only half the battle for the staff and volunteers. They also had to help the normally shy animals become familiar with people approaching them - and that was one tall order!
