This question already has an answer here:

When I press e in Tomb Raider: Survival Edition at the complete start it doesn't work when the metal spike is stuck in her.

What do I do?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you mean the metal spike when she falls down, you have to mash "e" rather than press it once. You'll find out rather quickly there's a lot of Quick Time Events in Tomb Raider, from mashing left/right to scrabble up a slope to as well as opening chests.

IMO Quick time event in Tomb Raider is a little messed up. Dunno which one to press between E or F... why they didn't have put the letter in the circle ? – Warface Apr 9 '13 at 20:40
@Warface, I found the left/right scrabble worse, I didn't know wether to use the arrow keys or a and d. – tombull89 Apr 10 '13 at 7:35
at least both are working and imaged on the screen. But the QTE with the circle getting smaller event... no freaking key is shown. – Warface Apr 10 '13 at 19:08
@tombull89: Both should work... – BoltClock Apr 12 '13 at 6:04
