Normally crucifixion was a long agonizing death, often taking days and
prolongation by offering liquid was part of the process. That Jesus died
within a few hours while those crucified with him required crurifragium is
certainly indicative of some acute pathology resulting from the severity of
Jesus' "special handling." A pulmonary embolism is, of course, very likely.
My opinion, however, leans toward hemothorax caused by the intense
concussive assault of the flagrum.
