The court heard new details in the trial of Eunice Wudrich on Tuesday.
The Aberdeen-area foster mother is charged with criminal negligence causing death.
Twenty-two-month old Evander Daniels drowned in a bathtub in the Wudrich home. The Crown is trying to prove the child was left alone long enough to be considered criminally negligent.
The court heard the recording of the 911 call that Wudrich made in June 2010.
“We have a baby that’s dead I think,” Wudrich tells the operator on the recording.
When the operator asked Wudrich how long the baby was underwater, Wudrich replied less than five minutes.
In the afternoon court heard Wudrich's two statements to the RCMP.
Daniels was one of five foster children being cared for by Wudrich and her husband.
