Default Newbie engine problem

My sons trail master mini xrx engine popped and cut itself off. The pull cable is locked and it is dripping out. Does this mean engine is dead or could it be salvaged.

Pull the recoil off and make sure the motor didn't seize. When an engine "pops" and dies my first suspicion would be that the flywheel key sheared.
