"That was close!” (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

phew

'that was close' is the definition.
(both are said after narrowly avoiding danger)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for phew that I've seen before include "Gosh, that's a relief!" , "Gosh, I'm sweltering!" , "Exclamation of relief" , "Sound relieved" , "Good gracious, its hot!" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, the King Feature Syndicate, the USA Today and the Universal.
