rabies, but its teeth have so small it's not clear if the kbat actually bit the girl. zoo officials are not taking any chances. >> the animal's mouth came in contact with the girl's skin, but we have to assume there's a potential bite there. the girl is undergoing treatment but is back at work at the zoo. officials say the bat may have been living under a nearby freeway overpass. this does mark the third rabid bat found in the east bay in the last month. we're hearing from the lake tahoe nurse credited with saving the life of a palo alto woman. a nurse was out for a walk when she saw the plane go down. she called her husband who is a local sheriff's deputy. because of her quick thinking, help arrived within minutes. >> when i passed the location, i
