Ianto was found with two siblings in a cardboard box in the middle of a grocery store parking lot, where the box could be run over. A friend of mine was there, and asked her husband not to run the box over in case there were rocks or something in it that would hurt their vehicle. She also had him move the box so others wouldn't have their vehicles damaged.
