Yeah, I found that one quite disturbing. I just didn't feel like quibbling about whether the death was "on screen".
It's also worth mentioning that TOS disintegrations were themselves quite shocking; at least, I found those by phaser to be shocking, in ways which the later, as it were, "more graphic" effects never could equal.
More on-screen non-disintegration red shirt deaths:
Wink of an Eye
That Which Survives
The tortured McCoy
in the Empath was pretty brutal.
What little girls are made of: Redshirt fell/pushed off ledge, redshirt snapped neck,and murder/suicide all in one episode.
Whom Gods Destroy: Marta dragged out into a poisonous atmosphere, choking and dying while Kirk is forced to watch, then blown up by Garth.
