The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation day and so the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath day, for that Sabbath was the first day of unleavened bread, requested Pilate that their legs be broken so that they would die and be taken away.

Then came the soldiers and broke the legs of those which were crucified with Him, but when they came to Jesus and saw that He was dead already, they didn’t brake His legs, but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear and blood and water immediately came out.                   John 19:31-34
