Not an appropriate example. The Chinese are somewhat reckless in their launch trajectories (which in itself has a small impact footprint). Those pictures are an example. Reentry is wildly different, since the whole world is pretty much a target. The risks are no where near the same.

If you are only one in the whole world who dies, it does matter to you.

It’s very unlikely to hit anything of consequence, but it was also reckless for them to launch without a plan to deorbit it.
