Default مات ابي و كنت صغير

مات ابي و أنا صغير

مات ابي و كنت صغير

The first one is true. What about the second one? If true, does it have a different meaning?

In the first sentence the the clause "و أنا صغير" is hall. The sentence means "My father died when (while) I was young".
The second are two sentences: My father died and I was small."
In the second sentence there is grammatical error. The khabar kana should be mansoob.
