According to this website a save is when you
Deliver the last blow on a monster when another player is at 5% health or less
granted the other player is reasonably close (my guess here is within 1 screen).
This answer is up to date as of 05/18/2014, game version 2.0.5, and comes from having farmed the achievement right now.
Getting a Savior callout requires:
The "victim" player should have two sets of items: one with maximum Life, another with no Vitality at all. Swapping to and from no-vit items brings your health down, though there is some kind of threshold, and your health settles a bit higher than your "naked" health.
Actual farming (we did this in Old Tristram Road with zombies, it is also doable with Carrion Nests and endless bats):
Every now and then one of the players will inadvertently step on a health globe. The victim has to stay below 5% life, so he should run out and take some hits. On the other hand, dropping too low is also dangerous - if you die and are revived, you'll be at full life and will have to swap again. Ideally, the victim should have a controllable regen gear or healing spells to stay at 4-5%.
