    come to one's rescue

    "I didn't know anybody at the party, but the hostess came to my rescue by introducing me to a few people."

    What would be another phrase for "came to my rescue" ?

    Thank you.

    Re: come to one's rescue

    How about simply "rescued me"? If you were having a fairly miserable time until she helped you, you could say that she "put me out of my misery".

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
