    make it out

    Is it possible to use "make it out" instead of "make it out of somewhere" or "make it out of somewhere alive" when the context makes the meaning clear?

    For example, could you say "Mary didn't make it out" instead of saying "Mary didn't make it out of the burning house" when "the burning house" is obviously understood?
