I think he was born on December 26, 1946 and he died in February 13, 1947.

If that was the case, he wouldn’t be 86 years old.

wheh he was born he was not a man, he is just a baby. when he died he was 86 in 1947. and 1946 must be the number of his house , room number of the hospital where he was born

He was born in 1946 BC and died in 1947 AD?

If that was the case, he would have been 3,893 years old, not 86.
