ROGERSVILLE — Three-year-old Emily Barnard was supposed to spend Saturday afternoon with her mom, dad and grandfather eating lunch, playing in the park and shopping.

By 11 a.m. Saturday, however, Emily was on a Lifestar helicopter on her way to Johnson City Medical Center suffering from what Hawkins County Sheriff Ronnie Lawson described as "extensive head injuries and bruises all over her body."

As a result of those injuries, Emily died Monday afternoon.
