I'm wondering how many zillions of sentient beings died as a result of the black hole fusion event.

The possibility of this being due to chance is vanishingly small. What they detected was 2 black holes circling each other at 250 times a second, one was 36 times the mass of the sun and the other 29 times. The entire signal only lasted for a fifth of a second.
