Jose barely managed to survive the plane crash.
"Jose, I carried you out of the plane. Are you all right?"
"My thanks, I'm fine." <-------- is this correct?

How about "Thanks to you, I am fine. (Because of what he did, you are fine.)

Or "Thank you. I am fine." (No connection between his action and your condition.)

...but if I were to say, "[STRIKE]My thanks, I'm fine[/STRIKE]," would that be correct in context? Instead of, "Thank you, I'm fine," is "My thanks, I'm fine" the same thing?

EDIT: Or should it be "My thanks to you, I'm fine"?

Nevermind, thanks.

It's not incorrect, and would be understood, but it's not a natural phrase to me and I think 'I'm fine thanks to you' would work better- you could then add 'Thank you so much', etc, to reinforce the idea.
