He started crying bitterly.

The angel of mercy appeared before him. He asked the woodcutter why he was crying. The woodcutter told him the whole matter. The angel took pity on him. He dived into the river and came up with a golden axe. He asked the woodcutter if that was his axe. The woodcutter told that that was not his axe.
