Because he was human. 100% human, and only human. Son of Man is a Hebrew idiom, literally translates Ben Adam (where Adam is both the name of the first human and the Hebrew word for human) - son of Adam which then means a human. It has always been used in Hebrew to denote a human, with no connotation ever to anything nonhuman, beyond human, or divine. Jesus used that idiom, and countless others too. It didn't refer just to Jesus, any other human can and have been referred to in Hebrew using the same idiom.
