YOu don't mention her age, which is important in planning how to handle these situations. Keep calm, and in age-appropriate terms, explain to her that though everyone dies eventually, you don't plan to do so for an awfully long time, and she won't do so for even longer. Explain that we are all careful not to take unnecesary chances and to keep each other safe, and that you expect to be safe with her.
And keep this topic open for on-going conversation.
Considering what an awful idea it is, its surprising more kids aren't bothered about the thought of death, and that they go for so long without apparently seeing it as something that will apply to their parents, friends and themselves. After all, from an early age they see TV, even kiddy cartoons, in which mayhem and death is frequent. Long before puberty, the average kid who watches Tv and goes to movies, has witnessed thousands of deaths.
