"remain or ..... (very intriguing)"

I looked at the concordance for 1 Thes 4:17 and the word translated as remain could have the meaning of survive. could this be of any significance?? Does it mean something might happen to some of the living right before the rapture to kill them???? Like something happens to kill some then the rapture where the dead are taken up first and then (same split second, a unnoticeable delay) those of us who did not die.
