il s'en est tire
In this sentence - Et il s'en est tiré sans la moindre égratignure. - the phrase - il s'en est tire - apparently means something like he did well, or he escaped?
Now tiré means , drawn, tired, printed, drawer, hunting ground...
... and tirer means pull, take, shoot, irritate, print....
I'm not seeing anything to help me make sense of this saying, phrase? Can someone help me out?
It comes from the expression "se tirer d'affaire" which means "s'extirper d'une mauvaise situation".
"Se tirer" and "tirer" have different meanings.
It is familiar language.
Awesome, thanks a lot, that background info really helps me understand sayings like that.
