  • Very different meanings, which surely are easily understood by consulting a dictionary. In fact both verbs are used rather unidiomatically. But again this will probably be made clearer having consulted a dictionary and understood the meanings of the two words

I add to what @Michael Harvey has said.

Both survives and rescues are unsuitable.

Other than prevents, we could consider also stops.
