事【こと】 is used to nominalize (not normalize) verbs, in other words turn a verb like "to eat" 食べる into "eating" 食べること as in 食べることが好き "I like eating".
事 can basically be translated as "thing / matter" and in the case of 他人事 it means "the things concerning other people" / "other peoples affairs". Note that it can also occur in words such as "human resources" 人事【じんじ】.
