    Did you mean: " to go out of the frying pan and into the fire"?

    It means to make matters worse, to worsen the situation that's already pretty bad.

    there is also to jump out of the frying pan into the fire: to exchange a bad situation for one that is even worse.
    OR it is a case of out of the frying pan into the fire.
