John Demjanjuk is helped into a wheelchair before boarding a plane Monday, May 11, 2009, at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland.
Federal agents carrying John Demjanjuk in a wheelchair put him on a small jet Monday to be deported to Germany, where the retired autoworker is accused of being a Nazi death camp guard in World War II.
Demjanjuk, 89, arrived in an ambulance at Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport after spending several hours with U.S. immigration officials at a downtown federal building.
He was to be brought before a judge and formally arrested.
He also has to undergo a medical evaluation to see if he is fit to stand trial.
The deportation came four days after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider Demjanjuk's request to block deportation and about 3 1/2 years after he was last ordered deported.
