Some scholars have made sanad Hasan, and in the sanad there is a Man who narrates, for example so and so the son of so and so said, but this man is weak in memory, but He also saw what was being narrated with His own eyes, so there is no doubt that He remembers what happened quite well. So my question is, would the narration of such a man be accepted? and why would it be considered Hasan, and not saheeh?

if he saw what is been narrated it must have been a sahabi and AFAIK they are considered as 'Udul so they can't be weak! – Medi1Saif Sep 22 '15 at 8:45
On the other hand there are rules on how to take a narration from narrators who are considered as weak and you may find some 100 or more of that in both sahih books! – Medi1Saif Dec 22 '15 at 10:21
If you can give some specific example that will make it easy to answer. – Zia Ul Rehman Mughal Apr 15 at 6:32
