“Throw out of…” or “throw out from…”?

I wonder which version is correct? Correct me if I am wrong.

I was thrown out from the place
I was thrown out of the place

For example, I am at my friend’s house and my friend has a brother and we are hanging out in his room. Then my friend’s brother comes and yells: “Get out! Leave!” and throws us out.

Can I say ‘he threw us out from his room’ or ‘he threw us out of his room’?


Both phrases are correct.

There is a little difference, though.
“Out from” means rather ‘out from some object’ than ‘out from some volume’.

According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary:

out of 

— used as a function word to indicate direction or movement from within to the outside of

// walked out of the room

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary doesn’t give examples with ‘out from’ except some idioms.

Compare two examples from Reverso.context.net:

Is government planning to throw us out from our homes?

I’m going to throw you out of this house.
