How this river in the US inspired an environmental movement

This river in the U.S. was so polluted that it caught fire at least 13 times, becoming almost totally devoid of life. But over 50 years later, it has turned into a peaceful waterway and a powerful symbol of environmentalism. This is the story of the infamous Cuyahoga river.
