    did a desperate escape

    I'm not sure that I did a desperate escape.

    I know the phrase of "have/make a narrow escape",

    but can I say "do a desperate escape"?

    Pls, tell me. THANKS!

    I'm not sure an escape can be called "desperate", but an attempt to escape can be. "Do" does not work there.

    I made a desperate attempt to escape.
