I would be willing to bet that considerably more people die taking their dogs for a walk than in aviation incidents - say over any given five year span.
The passengers will have heard a thump - and the pannicky few will set the others off.
I note the spray of liquid that shoots out of the back - is that likely to be the fuel line to the APU getting ruptured? Or just gin from the cart?

+1 for the pun

Aeroplanies should be designed to immediately explode and kill all of its passengers after an accident/incident, as to Not_disappoint those who think they are going to die.

Interesting idea... it would also greatly help the TV news folks, who depend heavily on people having died in unnatural fashions for their ratings.
