I was wondering if someone could tell me whether it's possible to say "save yourself'. A friend of mine was describing a movie she had seen. Not knowing the words 'escape' or 'get away', she ended up with 'save yourself":
The divers got trapped in the cave, but the main hero managed to save himself.
It looks fine from a grammatical point of view, but the lexical aspect is questionable.
Re: save yourself
No, this is quite normal to say that people have saved themselves.
